The Phillies have announced their Opening Day roster, which includes 12 pitchers, two catchers, six infielders and five outfielders:
Pitchers (starters in BOLD): Right-handers Joe Blanton, Roy Halladay, David Herndon, Kyle Kendrick, Jonathan Papelbon, Chad Qualls, Michael Stutes and Vance Worley, and left-handers Antonio Bastardo, Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Joe Savery.
Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies has waited his entire career to dominate batters with October mastery. Will Ryan Howard provide Doc, Cliff Lee and Hunter Pence with their first taste of the ultimate bubbly? Will the red pinstripes revisit the Fall Classic and find a familiar foe? Will this rival offer an extra incentive for a 2nd parade down Broad Street?
Eric Pettis proved that even 35th round draft picks can make a name themselves. In roughly a year and a half in the Phillies organization, the UC Irvine product posted a 10-3 record, a 2.17 ERA and 12 saves with 122 strike outs in 128 2/3 innings pitched. Last week the Phillies surprised many by releasing the 23-year-old who was selected late by Philadelphia in the 2010 amateur...
In the 10th straight opening day start of his career, Roy Halladay was nearly perfect. Through 8 innings against the Pirates, he allowed only 2 hits, both of which came in the 1st inning. After the 1st, he was unhittable.
And it is a very good thing, too. Because the Phillies offense got off to a bit of a slow start with a few exceptions. Carlos Ruiz went 3 for 3 and drove in the...
Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies is the cream in the NL East. What starter on the Braves also goes deep into games frequently? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my daily coverage.

Roy Halladay threw eight shut-out innings, while Jonathan Papelbon records his first Phil save, as the Phils squeak out an opening day win against the Pirates, 1-0.
The first six innings involved a pitcher’s duel between Phils’ starter Roy Halladay, who would give up two lead-off hits in the first, before inducing a doubleplay ball, before going through the Pirates’ line-up...
The Phillies didn’t exactly light it up offensively today, they scored just enough runs to out score the Pirates. The Phillies saw their only run score when Carlos Ruiz hit sacrifice fly to right field and Ty Wigginton scored. Roy Halladay pitched flawless for 8 innings today. Things went the way Halladay wanted them to go today. Halladay made his tenth opening day start today...
Roy Halladay outdueled Erik Bedard, pitching eight strong innings as the visiting Philadelphia Phillies opened the season with a 1-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Halladay (1-0) allowed back-to-back singles to Alex Presley and Jose Tabata leading off the first inning. The two-time Cy Young winner then got Andrew McCutchen to ground into a double play. A hit a batter in the...
Doc had his good stuff working. (AP)It’s the Year of the Pitcher, Round Three. In the Phillies season-opening 1-0 win over the Pirates, Roy Halladay and Erik Bedard kicked off the year with a duel and, of course, runs were hard to come by.Halladay was virtually unhittable, although Pirates left fielder Alex Presley led off the game with a single. Charlie Manuel made the move...
During the 2011-2012 Phillies offseason, the club was looking to either resign Ryan Madson or go elsewhere. Ryan Madson's asking price was entirely too much, so the Phils went out and brought in the best available closer on the market in Jonathan Papelbon.
Instead of paying $44 million on an arguably unproven closer in Madson, Ruben Amaro Jr. gave a proven Papelbon a four...
