Philadelphia Phillies relievers are on the hot seat

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Phillies Sports Illustrated CoverIt wasn’t a typical Roy Halladay start on Friday against the Houston Astros, going only six innings, but more true to form, he did limit the opposition to just one run on five hits. However, it took a walk-off victory to give the Philadelphia Phillies their first win in what many think will be another march to the World Series. And with a widely-publicized rotation that features Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels (not to mention the best fifth-starter in baseball, Joe Blanton), who would argue?

In a stunning turn of events, Cliff Lee, the offseason’s most sought-after free agent, has opted to return to Philly to join Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt in the starting rotation. We’ve seen phenomenal threesomes in the past, but a group of four like this comes around once a generation. Hamels may be the number four starter on this team, which is incredible, considering he’d be an ace for half of the other teams in baseball.

Loud chants of “Jimmy Rollins!” and heavy booing were frequent whether he was at the plate or in the field. A seven run eighth inning would lead to a decisive 11-5 Mets victory.
