Meet the new boss, Phillies fans
Yes, that was Roy Halladay in the brilliant blue Philllies practice Phillies practice jersey on the mound in Clearwater yesterday.
The occasion was batting practice.
The new Phils ace was on the hill. The result, according to at least one witness, was impressive.
Halladay was as advertised, dazzling the Phillies batters. It’s something hitters in the American League have gotten used to. Not it’s the NL’s turn. Not many balls made it out of the infield.
Or you can ask Phils’ rookie Domonic Brown. He’s expected to be the team’s next phenom. He took a few cuts against Halladay. Two foul balls and a whiff.
His verdict on Halladay: “Nasty.”
Spring is just around the corner.
