Agreed. I'd say it's safe to drop him for Darren Oliver.

Stupid Yahoo has him on some "undroppables" list. I'm going to send an angry email.

Why does Manuel feel the need to throw him out there for 130 pitches every second outing?

Because his rubber arm is legendary. I tend to agree though. They could have let someone else handle the 9th considering he was already up around 115 through 8. If there's one pitcher in the game who you wouldn't worry about 130 pitches, though, it's Halladay.

Halladay is to the CG in the 21st century as Babe Ruth was to the HR in the 20's and 30's.

Old Man Contreras sent back to Philly for an MRI. Madson in as closer.

Starting Freddy Garcia over James Shields for my final start of the week costs me the W. This is my 2011 season in a nutshell.

Everybody has their limit, though. Even the best pitcher of our era. No reason to push him in an April game, imo.
