Is Joyner’s Departure the Reason for Brown’s Struggles?

Untouchable. Websters dictionary defines the word untouchable as “forbidden to the touch”, but in baseball the word untouchable has another meaning. If a player is deemed untouchable by an organization it is a sign to the fan base that this particular player is destined for greatness. So when Domonic Brown was deemed as such by the Phillies in 2009, Phillies fans took notice...

Happily retired, Halladay now pitches wisdom

The Phillies have depth issues with their starting pitching, but Roy Halladay is not the solution. He is not sneaking off and secretly throwing bullpen sessions, preparing to give it one more try. He is done. “Absolutely,” he said Wednesday. “For me it was a long decision. It wasn’t something that happened overnight. It was the right decision for me. It was the only option...

What does Glavine’s Induction Mean for Doc Halladay?

The election of Tom Glavine into the Hall of Fame makes me wonder how voters will reflect on Roy Halladay’s career. The two careers are by no means similar, but that’s what makes it a fascinating comparison. Glavine is well deserving of his induction. Over his twenty-year career from 198-2007 (excluding his very first and last seasons in which he combined to throw only 113.2...

How many Hall of Fame pitchers' careers have you witnessed in your lifetime? I'm only 24 years old.
