The top three starters for the Philadelphia Phillies get off to good starts

Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Roy Oswalt lived up to their advanced billing with solid first starts for the Phillies. They combined to go 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA and a 0.79 WHIP for the Phillies over the weekend. The trio was downright nasty as they only gave up 14 hits in 19 innings over the weekend while whiffing 23 batters and only walking 1! The Phillies’ starting pitchers come right at hitters and they have great stuff. I think the rest of the N.L. is in deep trouble because of the quality and quantity of the Phillies’ starting rotation as Cole Hamels and Joe Blanton are also really solid pitchers.

    Hopefully it will continue. It’s still early and I hope that they stay healthy and hot.
    It’s a scare when you see Roy Oswalt go off not looking good recently.
    Let’s see how they finish the year.

    Jeff, I think the only thing that could stop the Phillies’ rotation is injury. They are too good not to win a ton of games this year.
