Pat got a chance to speak with a local doctor about what goes into a surgery like the one Roy Halladay will undergo. Jay spoke with top minor league prospect Jesse Biddle at Reading, and he talked about what it would be like to get the call to the bigs.
Former Phillies left-handed reliever Aaron Fultz now serves as the pitching coach for the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. The Alabama native spent his first season as a pro coach, last year, with the short-season Williamsport Crosscutters.
During his playing career, Fultz’s best season was 2005, when he tallied a 4-0 record with a 2.24 ERA in 62 appearances for the Phils. Fultz also played in the big leagues with the Twins, the Rangers, the Giants and the Indians.
Early this season, PN’s minor league insider Jay Floyd interviewed Aaron for Phillies Nation TV. The 39-year-old spoke about his time with the Phillies, his transition into coaching and some of his pitching prospects. The segment went unused on the TV program, but we definitely wanted to bring it to the fans anyway. Check out the interview in the media player below and tune into Phillies Nation TV every Tuesday at 6 PM on The Comcast Network. The program also replays throughout the week, so check your listings.

In case you missed it last night, here is this week’s episode of Phillies Nation TV.
Pat and Corey analyze Roy Halladay’s future as well as Tyler Cloyd, his replacement for Friday’s game. They also discuss some early season trade rumors, breakdown the best MLB players for WAR, and preview the Arizona series.
Of course, Ryann has reader questions presented by BQ Basement Systems and also an exclusive interview with Jimmy Rollins.
Jesse Biddle had one of those night’s you can’t explain. On Monday in Harrisburg, Biddle fanned 16 and had a perfect game into the seventh inning. His final pitch count was just 104. Ridiculous.

Ben Revere looked like a man on a mission last night. With a pair of highlight reel catches, Revere pulled out all the stops behind Cliff Lee. Before the game, he dedicated his play to the victims of the Boston tragedy, including a taping a simple message on his glove: Pray for Boston.
For the benefit of those who missed it, here is video of Revere’s catch from last night, courtesy of MLB.com. Two of my favorite things in the video: how stunned the doubled-up Jay Bruce is and how stunned the fans in Cincinnati were! The Reds ended up getting the last laugh, winning 4-2 late, but Revere’s catch will show up on highlight reels for quite a while.
