Here's a good article by Matt Gelb on Roy Halladay's outing yesterday. The highlight is Phils pitching coach Rich Dubee speaking his mind loosely about HLHIII and firmly in response to the inane panic/speculation/gleeful loser franchise chiding/whatever-you-want-to-call-it in reaction to a few practice game performances. GET EM, DUBES:
"People can say whatever," pitching coach Rich Dubee said. "We're talking about a guy who is 188-92 in his career. He should have won 20 last year. He pitched to one of his lowest ERAs last year. What's the panic? It's what spring training is about. That's Roy Halladay right there. What, six innings and 72 pitches? Maybe a couple of misfires here and there? Cutter was accelerating through the strike zone again. Sinker was going the other way. Split was back. Everything was in place."Concur.
