Lost in the Hoopla

19 Jul

WARNING: This is more of a rant then a post.

I was surely glad to hear that Roy Halladay will “Absolutely” make his next start, but what was lost in all the hoopla around Halladay was how poorly the Phillies played in Chicago last night.

The Phillies looked terrible at the plate last night.  Just terrible.

Where was the plate discipline?  How is it that it took until the 4th inning just to get a hit?  I’m sure that Rodrigo Lopez game planned for the Phillies, but did we game plan for him?

I was thinking the other day that the Phillies had been showing more patience at the plate, but they showed very little last night.  Take a few pitches, please.

Side Note –

I just wanted to point out what a great teammate Chase Utley is.  When he knelt down and pretended to tie his shoe last night to give Halladay extra time to catch his breath I thought to myself, “How awesome is this guy?”  Class act.
