Phillies Notebook: History not on Oswalt's side against Marlins
Not freaking out based on small sample.
"I hate the Yankees," said Mr. Rendell, a Chicago White Sox and Philadelphia Phillies fan. "If we're going to have minor league baseball in Pennsylvania, why not have the best brand? The Yankees are the No. 1 brand. Let's keep them here."
Oh Ed, don't ever change.
J.A. Happ has the chance to dominate National League hitters for the next ten years or more. Roy Oswalt may have a good year or two left in him. It’s no coincidence that the Phillies acquired him after he started having injury problems. It was a while ago when people wondered if Oswalt would be the "next Nolan Ryan" and the answer was no.
It's a few days old, but it's still one of the most spectacularly ill-informed things I've ever read.
