Only 1 of The Roys has come through for the Phillies since the 2 joined forces, and that Roy hasn't been Oswalt. We all know Halladay is a beast and is a legitimate candidate for the Cy Young, but the other Roy has some serious catching up to do. His first outing with the Phightins we can chalk up to nerves, over stimulation from media hounding him, whirlwind of emotion, etc., but tonight there are no more excuses. With a win tonight Oswalt can get back on track and assure a sweep of the Marlins. Roy-2 Part 2 Phils win.
*Count how many times Sarge says "for me" during a telecast when giving his opinion. It drives me nuts, and now that I've brought it to your attention hopefully it drives you nuts too.
*I don't mean to piss in your Frosted Flakes (after all "They're Great!"), but people need to chill out in their expectations of Domonic Brown. He's a rare talent for sure, but he hasn't been all that impressive yet. I know this may surprise you, but his OPS is only .568. That's not good, that's not mediocre, that's bad. Now, it's a small sample size and he is just a rookie, but when Victorino returns, Brown should return to Triple-A for regular at bats because he's going to be needed next year with Jayson Werth shipping off. Please don't take this as a knock on Dom, it's not. I'm simply trying to put things into perspective and that perspective should be- don't expect too much from the youngster.
