Some Phillies Links For You, July 28, 2010: Strasburg Railroaded, Shane Pain, New Trade Focus

Victorino injured this time as homers save Phillies against D'Backs

"I don’t think it’s that bad I hope it’s not that bad, but I won’t know until I take an MRI," Victorino said. "It’s something there and obliques are things a lot of people say not to play through. I don’t want to make it worse, make it a month-long thing when I can make it three days. Hopefully I’ll feel better when I roll out of bed."

Shane Victorino, M.D.

Cliff Lee is a video game pitcher

Cliff Lee is no longer an American League pitcher, he's a video game. The ridiculous lefty had to settle for a no-decision against Oakland on Tuesday despite another outstanding outing (9 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 13 K). For the year, Lee has 114 strikeouts against seven walks.

The Phillies traded the better pitcher...

And here I thought he was good.
