Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, and Placido Polanco will make the trek to Arizona to play in the 2011 MLB All-Star game. Polanco was voted in as the starter by the fans, while Halladay would seem to be the starting pitcher in the game if all ends well in the first half. He’s likely the front runner.
Also, Shane Victorino can make it with your help as the final vote for the NL. Congrats to all and good luck to Victorino.
Yesterday…what happened!? Today is a new day and it’s the 4th of July, so lets start anew. Vance Worley goes for his 4th win on the 4th, opposed by Ricky Nolasco. The Marlins were brutally bad in the month of June, but have won back to back games. This feels like a bit of a trap series for the Phillies, who are coming off a tough loss to end their Toronto series.
It’ll be up to Worley, who has been outstanding, to make sure that does not happen.
Enjoy your holiday weekend!!
Why not celebrate the peak of the summer with an ice cold Corona. Nothing beats one of these on the beach, by the pool side, or while tending to a grill stacked with your favorite meats. Lime or no lime, it’s a refreshing reminder of the summer for many. Enjoy the next two months, because they’ll go by so quickly. -By Pat
