Roy Halladay injury a significant development in NLCS

The not-exactly-out-on-a-limb LCS predictions

Yeah, no surprises here. I'm going Phillies over Giants, and Yankees over Rangers. I'm already on record as predicting a Phillies-Yankees World Series. And while I got three of the four Division Series right, the fact it will be the Rangers facing the Yankees, instead of Rays-Yankees, in the ALCS...

Only five teams have come back...

Roy Halladay is gonna love the National League

Monday marked the three-week checkpoint until Roy Halladay's regular-season debut for the Philadelphia Phillies, which will be against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park on April 5, Opening Day. With that in mind, I ventured out to one of my favorite Grapefruit League stadiums, Bradenton's McKechnie Field, to see Halladay...

In case you missed it...

Two news items that had nothing to do with league championship series raised my eyebrows, the first was the hiring of White Sox Manager Ozzie Guillen to be a Fox studio analyst. The second was the news that former MLBPA head Donald Fehr is being given an $11 million severance package.
