This afternoon the Phillies’ official Facebook page posted this picture to preview Roy Halladay‘s start at Progressive Field tonight. Fortunately for all of us, Roy appears to have forgotten to close his fly for this photo op and nobody seems to have noticed up until this point.

The Delmon Young era in Philadelphia is officially underway. Hooray.
The Phils’ PR department announced today at 1:22 PM that Young has been activated off the disabled list. Reports say he will be joining the team in Cleveland. Ezequiel Carrera, who I continually forget exists, has been designated for assignment.
So, yeah. This should be fun.
Meet Kevin Krigger. Kevin is a rising star in the world of horse racing. He also looks a hell of a lot like a tiny Jimmy Rollins, at least in this picture. (He’s the one on the right, duh.)
Philadelphia is a long shot to host the 2024 Olympics.
Some cities are places people seem to want to go. Some are even combining forces to make a real push. Given our city’s frequent, incoherent, burning of bridges, the likelihood of our own mutually beneficial partnership is low.
How do we, then, keep pace with the immense support these other cities will gain by joining together? That’s right, by awkwardly shoe-horning our favorite sports team into the situation.
So now, we begin the process of submitting Philadelphia Olympic logo ideas on behalf of the Phillies, who would almost certainly prevent us from doing so if they didn’t think all of these were brilliant.
A freakish smattering of stubbornness, anger, and bone dust, nothing embodies the Olympic spirit like an athlete unwilling to surrender, even in the face of constant defeat or pain or family members begging them to.
Chase’s knees are a pair of trophies that he’ll smile and nod at one day – in private, where all smiling in the Utley household takes place – next to his two consecutive MVP Awards that he won at 45 and 46 years old, from on top of a pair of revolutionary cyber-knees.
Foreign athletes learning of Chase’s training, playing, and rehabilitation regimen will be inspired to play the sport they love until their body rejects it, physically. And we don’t want Olympians leaving Philadelphia without feeling like they exhausted every ounce of effort, blood, and feces they have.
This is assuming they all have Utley’s “not dying” ability as well.
According to Larry Shenk’s blog, Dallas Green has written an autobiography.
“The Mouth That Roared” will be available at the usual brick and mortar retail locations Wednesday. The Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park will also carry it. You can order it on Amazon right now.
Green will be available to sign copies of his book Saturday morning at the Barnes & Noble in Broomall, PA, starting at 11 a.m.
