No disrespect to the Blue Jays, but they're a mediocre team. I can handle losing two out of three from the Red Sox, as they're one of the truly elite teams in the game, but the Phillies need to beat teams like the Blue Jays at home, especially when they don't even have to face Halladay. What a dreadful homestand.
The Jays are better than mediocre. Their hitting has been incredible and they've had some nice surprises with pitchers like Richmond who I thought was going to get slaughtered this year. Everyone knows what Halliday can do but there's been one injury after another and they just keep chugging along.
