Utley and Polanco on the DL. Uh oh. A tired arm on Halladay? Uh oh.
A series against one of the worst franchises, in recent memory, the
Pirates coming up.
If they cannot feast on the poor teams (a la the Cleveland Indians) then
I would officially move my state from "concerned" to "worried".
Right now I'm

Was it So Taguchi or Tad Iguchi that filled in so well, time takes those

I really miss Jayson Stark's Sunday column from the Philadelphia

So in summation, the kid (my kid, not me) made it to the first two

and that PNC park.
Welcome home, son.
