The success of the 2013 Phillies is hinging on several specific issues. One is Roy Halladay, whose start this past weekend was supposed to be the indicator of his true status. Would he come out and dominate or give up double digit runs? The predictions went wild.
In other news, Delmon Young's rehab is moving along nicely, so soon we may be able to watch warped, fundamentally flawed defense in right field as well. The Phillies are nothing if not symmetrical. But you can understand why they wanted to distract us this morning with an awesome mystery.
After coming close to playing in or even winning the Super Bowl for several years in the past decade, Lurie's dream is now to get his team geographically close to the Super Bowl, in hopes that by putting the two things in the same room, they will somehow combine with each other.
"Child's play" coincidentally being the most commonly used term to describe the Eagles' 2012-13 season.
The Flyers have entered the part of a disappointing season where job security becomes the first topic of conversation. The crosshairs were initially over head coach Peter Laviolette, but now seem to have drifted to general manager Paul Holmgren.
It was Holmgren who informed us that Lavy's job was not threatened, but with the latest questions being about the GM himself, we are forced to turn to the input of an "anonymous source" to get the latest news.
