Some snippets I pulled out of today's Philadelphia Daily News:
Brandon Duckworth blanked the Astros for three innings, surrendering one hit and striking out three. He hasn't surrendered a run in his six innings.
Catcher Mike Lieberthal's sore and fatigued legs will keep him out of the lineup at least 1 more day, but he might play when the Phillies visit the Yankees tomorrow night. He hasn't played since Friday...With shortstop Jimmy Rollins at 1-for-14 entering yesterday (and that one hit being an infield single, complemented by five strikeouts), Placido Polanco moved up a slot and batted leadoff yesterday, switching with Rollins, who lost his leadoff spot last season. "It's just an experiment," manager Larry Bowa insisted. Polanco got a hit and Rollins a walk. Neither scored a run...
I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
