Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Roy HalladayThe doctor is in. Roy Halladay picked up his 15th win of the season on Saturday against the Mets and with that win he brought himself into the top five in all three National League Pitching Triple Crown categories. His 15 wins have him third behind Ubaldo Jimenez and Adam Wainwright’s 17; 2.24 ERA is also third, behind Tim Hudson’s 2.13 and Wainwright’s 1.99, and his 175 strikeouts place first among National Leaguers, 10 ahead of Felix Hernandez.

The Philadelphia Phillies are getting stronger everyday

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Injuries, MLB,

Ryan HowardWith a 10th inning game-winning home run by Carlos Ruiz, the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Florida Marlins and became Major League Baseball’s hottest team. After an unexpectedly slow start to the season, the Phillies have turned their fortunes around and are making a strong push for a playoff berth and not even a slew of midseason injuries seem to be slowing them down. In fact, as more players go down, the team as a whole appears to become strong in subsequent games.

Philadelphia Phillies J.A. Happ: Trade Bait or Keeper?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Injuries, MLB,

J.A. HappJ.A. Happ is all over the place lately. The Phillies will likely lose 47-year-old starter Jamie Moyer to the disabled list with an elbow injury, and Happ seems to be the most likely candidate to replace him, but Happ’s name has been linked with several other teams that he’s been shopped to, including the Houston Astros, because the Phillies have shown interest in Roy Oswalt and are willing to part with last year’s NL Rookie of the Year runner up.

Rollins back from injury, may make All-Star lineup

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Jimmy RollinsAre the Philadelphia Phillies starting to come back around? With a 7-3 record in their last 10 games, the injury-plagued Phillies share the best record with the Mets for the last week and a half. The team also got a shot in the arm when former All-Star Jimmy Rollins rejoined the team on Tuesday in advance of their three-game sweep against the Cleveland Indians. Rollins is a welcome offensive and defensive improvement at shortstop that the Phillies have been lacking this season.

Interleague play on its growing edge

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: MLB,

Roy HalladayInterleague play wraps up this week, and if nothing else, it certainly seems like things have become a little stale. Overall, the American League has dominated their older brothers since 2004, and that hasn’t changed this season. With the novelty of the in-season, cross-league games worn off, it seems that every year more people are starting to question the necessity of Interleague play going forward. MLB is aware that there are those with their problems, but it does not look like things will improve soon.

Jays win, Halladay loses…not your typical headline

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Roy HalladayThe Blue Jays got their first taste of an opposing Roy Halladay on Wednesday when they made the short trip from Dunedin to Bright House Field in Clearwater. The Jays showed their appreciation for Halladay and his new Philly uniform by swatting balls left and right, touching up the ace starter for four runs in the first inning alone. However, Halladay was able to pick himself up in the show why he’s one of the best by striking out three batters in the second.

Santana claims he’s best in the NL East

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Editorial, MLB,

Johan SantanaIs there anything worse than a cocky athlete? When Mets ace Johan Santana was asked who he thought the best pitcher in the National League East was, he took a moment to “think” about his answer before saying, “Santana… simple.” Not only is that a slap in the face to the other teams in his division, but also to his teammates like Mike Pelfrey, John Maine and Francisco Rodriquez. Of course fans want the best players to play on their team, they just don’t want those players to say they’re the best.

Bay moving to New York, but not the good New York

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Editorial, MLB,

Jason BayIt seems as if the New York Mets have certainly lucked out. After holding out against the Red Sox for the last half year, Jason Bay has signed with the Mets. This deal is hopefully what will be the first in what the Mets want to be a series of moves to improve their on-field product. The Mets had what appears to be the best offer on the table monitarily, and Bay will be heading to New York with a four-year, $66-million contract in his back pocket.
