The Phillies just announced that Jimmy Rollins has been scratched from this afternoon's lineup against the Mets at Shea Stadium. Eric Bruntlett is taking his place, and hitting leadoff.

We don't know why Rollins has been pulled, but when we do we'll let you know.


Harry Kalas, who had surgery to repair a detached retina last Friday, has been cleared to return to work and will rejoin the team Saturday. He will travel with the team Sunday to Washington DC.


Running behind schedule today because of the 12:10 p.m. first pitch, so here's a look back at last night's 6-3 loss. Jim Salisbury said it's too early to tell how Project Remedy has worked for Brett Myers. Billy Wagner didn't "suck it up" Tuesday, but shutdown the Phillies last night. And in the Phillies Notebook: So Taguchi knows he's not getting more playing time anytime soon and the chances of the Phillies getting Xavier Nady before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
