The Phillies have told us that Roy Halladay's surgery yesterday was a smashing success.Roy had successful shoulder surgery yesterday. He had an arthroscopic evaluation and underwent debridement of his labrum and rotator cuff as well as removal of an inflamed bursa.So it was successful in the sense that it happened. And then you remember that the surgery itself is horrible, horrible news.He’ll begin a progressive rehabilitation program and if all goes well, he may possibly begin a throwing program in 6-8 weeks.”Potentially. Maybe. We don't know. I will now refer you to my recent post "Why Roy Halladay is Doomed,
Here's the good news, Phillie fans. ESPN's Jayson Stark asked a NL executive if he'd sign Roy Halladay post-surgery."Of course. Why not?" he said. "If there's one guy like that you're going to bet on, wouldn't you bet on Roy Halladay?"Here's the bad news. Stark also flagged some numbers by FanGraphs, documenting the fate of the 62 pitchers older than 35 who have ever gone on the disabled list for a shoulder injury. (Let alone have surgery.) Halladay turns 36 next week.Players over the age of 35 that went on the DL for any sort of shoulder injury only averaged 59
After getting shellacked yesterday for 9 earned runs in 2.1 innings, Roy Halladay has been sent to the Disabled List. Indefinitely. Dun dun dun. He reported pain in his right throwing shoulder, an ailment that has apparently bugged him since April 24th. We're a little over a month into the baseball season, so it's high time we get nervous about Doc, right?A poll, per Philly.com:And the results are in: Phillies fans have set a new record for apocalyptic fandom.[Daily News]
Roy Halladay had to be pulled in the first inning of a spring training game against the Orioles Sunday. The culprit: a stomach virus. Or, if you like, the Roy Halladay diet.
Roy Halladay says he's lost "maybe 10 pounds" in the last 2 days. Still hopes to throw side session tomorrow & make next start Saturday— Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) March 19, 2013
AP reports: "Roy Halladay is still looking for the one thing he came to the Philadelphia Phillies to get: A World Series ring. “I’m playing to win a World Series,” Halladay said Wednesday. “That’s why I’m playing baseball and for no other reason. However we get to that goal, that’s the bottom line. If it takes 320 innings and I can throw it, I’ll do it. That’s the reason I’m here. And that’s it. I’m not worried about next year and two years and three years from now. I’m trying to win a World Series.” Halladay missed nearly two months in the
The Phils asked fans to send in photos of their Phillies-themed pumpkins this year, and they got some seriously impressive responses. There's an awesome take on the old Phanatic logo, a painted pumpkin that looks like a Phanatic version of one of those Sesame Street shirts with the big face on the chest, and there's someone's take on pretty much every team logo ever used. One jack-o-lantern, though, wins the Internet this week as it's an incredibly accurate image of Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay. [Zoo With Roy]
Doc Halladay—who has missed Phillies action since May 27th due to a strained lat muscle—will make a rehab start on Thursday for the Single-A Clearwater Threshers. Halladay is 4-5 for Phils this season and has posted a 3.98 ERA through 72.1 innings over 11 starts. He should return to the Phillies within three weeks, marking the first time since last season that he, Ryan Howard and Chase Utley will be with the team together since last season—that is, assuming Utley and Howard can stay healthy until then.

Sports Illustrated recently asked 227 Major League Baseball players to name the most overrated pitcher in baseball. Four Phillies were named in the top 15 that made the list. Jonathan Papelbon ranked 5th. Lee, Halladay and Hamels ranked 11th, 13th, and 15th respectively. Um, Doc threw a no-hitter and a perfect game in 2010—and one of those games came in October. So, we're going to go ahead and call shenanigans. [S.I.]
Phew. We were treated to some good news (?) from the Phillies on Roy Halladay's shoulder today. After getting a second opinion, the Phils have decided they're going to shut Halladay down for three weeks. After three weeks of no throwing, they'll get him up and tossing again and move forward based on how he feels. As of now, he's still slated to return to action 6-8 weeks from when we learned about this whole issue. This is significantly better than the possibly awful news we were all bracing for leading up to this afternoon's press conference.
