Some Phillies Links For You, September 17, 2010: Off-day Scoreboard Cruising, Reading Makeover

Phils' MVP? How about Ruiz?
In a non-Roy Halladay world, this is a very good suggestion.

Talk grows about making Wild Cards wilder
Personally, I go back and forth on this. On the one hand, I like how things are going now, but on the other, I like the idea of rewarding the division winner and "punishing" the Wild Card team somehow.

Lawrence: Phils aren't shoo-ins ... just yet
While Lawrence dismisses the idea that Roy Halladay's failure to pitch in the postseason is a concern, I wonder if it is a legit concern for many. And I'm afraid to hear the answer. More importantly, I dread what I will hear if/when Halladay has a poor start in the playoffs.

Phillies maintain three game lead for league's best record.

Padres drop to second place (tied in loss column, though).

Giants beat L.A., move into first place in NL West
So, if the season ended right now, the Phillies would get the Padres in the first round Padres would be eliminated.  Devastating turn of events!
