Roy Halladay joined an elite group of pitchers to hurl a perfect game in Major League history, becoming only the 20th to do so. It was the 10th no-hitter in franchise history (Charlie Ferguson, Red Donahue, Chick Fraser, Johnny Lush, Jim Bunning, Rick Wise, Terry Mulholland, Tommy Greene, and Kevin Millwood being the others). It was the 3rd MLB no-hitter this season (Ubaldo Jimenez and Dallas Braden) and 2nd perfect game (Braden).
*Grand Pappy Moyer fits right in with the retired old heads of Florida and it shows in his performance when there- 8 wins in 9 starts with a 1.66 ERA. Like the Karate Kid Danielson, go for the sweep!
*Brad Lidge tossed a perfect inning for Single-A Clearwater and hopes to return from the DL as early as Monday.
*Possible cut? I've been advocating the release of Greg Dobbs recently, and will not stop until- A) he starts to hit, or B) he's sent packing. With Jimmy Rollins set to come off the DL on June 6th Wilson Valdez's time may be up. However, I suggest keeping him and letting Dobbs go.
*Placido Polanco will have a MRI done today on his sore left elbow. This injury has been lingering for over a month now thanks to a Tim Hudson fastball. The next time the Phils face Hudson, they should make like Ludacris and "throw them 'bows."
