Phillies Breakfast Links, August 7, 2009: Busted Up Pitchers, Overcrowded Rotation, and One More Honor for Harry Kalas


Lidge still key for Phillies
It's pretty disingenuous to say that Brad Lidge has "converted all eight of his save opportunities" since his return from the DL. He's had some really dreadful outings.


Phillies Notes: Durbin's return believed near
Thank goodness for that!  Kalas to be inducted into Wall of Fame
And I doubt there's going to be a dry eye in the house.


Phils plan 6-man rotation, with a twist
This could get messy. Don't buy tickets hoping to see a specific pitcher.


Phillies' Myers says he feels fine after simulated game
Brett Myers could be a huge boost to the bullpen down the stretch if he's healthy.


John Smoltz can’t cheat Father Time
Wow, he's been really, really bad for the Red Sox. The Phillies have a better rotation than Boston at this point.


Happ's success as starter keeps him in rotation
What took them so long?


Minor Leagues: Trenton tops Reading, 8-4
Of note: Domonic Brown with an RBI triple; Trevor May struck out seven in 4 2/3 for Lakewood.
