What's the #?
*I couldn't bring myself to do a second consecutive post focused solely on the Pirates. Therefore I went with the mixed theme of the Phucco (Phillie + Bucco).
*I'm still baffled by Charlie Manuel's selection of utility infielder Omar Infante for the NL All-Star squad over the 1st half MVP Joey Votto. Infante is batting .309, but it's empty because he only has amassed 9 extra base hits. Meanwhile Votto boasts a 1.017 OPS and has nearly as more RBI (59) than Infante has games played (57). What the hell was Fuqua thinking?!
*Roy Halladay is on a pace to pitch 278 innings this season. Gotta think he'll fall a bit short of that.
*Chase Utley is shooting for a return to the lineup in 6 weeks, rather than the original prognosis of 8.
*Big ups to Greg Dobbs who has went 6-21 (.286) since his brief stint in the minors.
