That was Golson? I saw it while at the bar but had no idea it was him. What a ****ing missile.

When Utley was on first they were already pitching around him.

201 Ks, 2nd in NL to Tim Lincecum (tied with Hamels lollllllll)
8 complete games, 1st in ML
3 shutouts, 1st in NL

The only competition I see would be Wainwright. I think Jimenez has just had too bad of a 2nd half.
I would be very dissapointed if Halladay doesn't win the Cy Young this year.

You can add his perfect game to his resumee, btw, I am sure the voters take that into consideration.

Hope he can make it to 20 wins. It would be the first time since Carlton in '82.

Halladay stands a great chance, I think it's really a two man race between him and Wainwright now that Josh Johnson is done. St Louis is fading now, while the Phillies are surging so that should work in his benefit.

Halladay is also going to have a notable lead in IP when it's all said and done (barring him skipping a start or two down the stretch). He has 12.1 more IP than Wainwright as of now, and that's in one less start. So he should be in the neighborhood of 20 more innings than his closest competitor.

BTW, Atlanta is losing by 2 in the 7th as I write this. We'll have a shot at pushing it to 3 games with a win tonight if that holds.

Worried you'd jinxed it, but Washington holds on for the win.

Hmm, so if you go to SI.com and look under the "NL's Team to Beat" headline, let's just say that Roy Oswalt probably does pretty well with the ladies judging by that picture.

Halladay has been very mortal recently, and I have to admit, I'm a little concerned. It's a good thing we've been scoring a **** load of runs during his recent starts, but we need him to be in peak performance mode down the stretch and into the playoffs.

Jim Rome is a big enough ****** all by himself, but wow. This is another level. He reminds me of Romulox from Aqua Teen:

"There's only two people in the world who have easy flow elbow and one of them happens to be named Bruce Willis."

"Oh, gee, I'm sorry, is this the movie Thief, music by Tangerine Dream? I don't think so."

and a picture:

I've said this before, but... when Roy Halladay is starting and we build up leads like this, I'm in favor of getting him out of the game as soon as possible, so as to save him from pitching any more innings than is absolutely necessary.

For example, with a 9-2 lead, I'd have even taken him out after the 5th. He's in line for the win and we're up 7. Give the mop-up dudes in the bullpen some work. Yeah, Herndon sucks, but he can pitch an inning without ****ing up too badly. Same goes for Romero, get him some work. Whatever.

6th: Herndon
7th: Baez
8th: Romero
9th: Contreras

I've been saying the same thing like all year. When would leave him in to get a complete game when we had a big enough lead to let the bullpen take care of it, and games like tonight. He's going back out there right now with a huge lead to pitch it hot humid weather when its clear he needs a break.

He has given up 10 hits tonight, that is not the Halladay we have seen for the majority of this year. We need him to be our best pitcher and right now he is clearly our #3. He needs a break, and Charlie needs to realize that.

EDIT: Maybe Charlie was checking in to see what we thought because he put Durbin in for the 7th lol. Who proceeds to let up a leadoff triple.

Just thought it was interesting that under Yahoo's fantasy "Who's Hot" list: All three are Phillies. Howard, Utley, and Victorino.

I figured every athlete does (except basketball players), but what do I know?

Side Note: Uh... Charlie, why Madson and Lidge with such a big lead? Come on. I'm NEVER a proponent of using your closer in a non-save situation, even if he hasn't had much work recently because of injury. And, look, now Lidge is having command issues and has got himself in some trouble.

Contreras should have been the one who started the 9th. Whatever, glad he came in and cleaned up Lidge's mess. Another big win and a sweep of the Marlins. The boys are rolling now, right on cue... as has always been the case in September.

I wonder if us scoring a ton of runs in his recent starts have also affected the way he's approached hitters. Maybe we need to give him crappier run support and he'll get back to form.

Ah... yes. If you're playing in the infield and you're not wearing a cup, you're taking your life into your own hands. Some don't (Adrian Beltre), but I would assume the vast majority do. OF probably don't necessarily.

I didn't wear a cup when I played HS football...

I love our rotation.

Halladay
Hamels
Oswalt

Is this the best Phillies rotation ever?
