The Phils' ace has been out of action for over a month after a right lat strain back on May 27th. When originally diagnosed, Halladay was given 6-8 weeks recovery time plus rehab time. If my math is on track, he's been gone for exactly seven weeks today. So if you take the one away from the eight and subtract the possible two weeks for reha- AH WHO CARES DOC IS BACK! Sorry, I got a little carried away there. But yes, Roy Halladay will make his first start since May 27th and will hope to operate on the funk that this team has had since he left. Since May 28th, when Halladay officially went on the DL, the Phillies are a major league worst 13-27. Yikes. Hopefully the good doctor can perform some surgery to help this team get their heads out of their asses (pardon my French). Anyway, the Phillies will open up a three-ga...

Los Angeles Dodgers create “blogger” heaven

Perhaps the Dodgers were sending some sort of message by deciding to hold their annual “Blogger Night” on Friday, the 13th.  Although that date is associated with ominous events, the evening’s festivities created nothing but terrific memories.

Interesting time for Phils, Dodgers to meet

The Phillies and Dodgers have a long history of key meetings with each other. The one they're about to play in Los Angeles is interesting not because of its meaning in the standings, but because of the pending trade deadlines and how the two teams matchup.

Phillies-Dodgers Preview
