Why are the Phillies one of the very few teams not to skip a starter to get their ace another outing?
It seems that they would be the most likely to do so for two reasons:
- They have a total horse in Halladay
- They had an injury in the starting staff (Blanton), so they’d actually be skipping their sixth starter to get another start from Roy.
The only answer I can think of is that they don’t want Kyle Kendrick pitching their home opener. I sure hope that isn’t the reason, but I’m afraid that it might be.
