I Just Don’t Get It

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:

  1. They have a total horse in Halladay
  2. 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.
