08:18 AM ET 05.28 | There have been stretches when both teammates and fans alike have been wowed by Roy Halladay -- this is not one of them. Manager Charlie Manuel acknowledged his concern after Halladay had to leave following the second inning of the Phillies' 8-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday at Busch Stadium. "Worried? Yeah, definitely I'm concerned," Manuel said. "Yeah, I'm worried. Our pitching is one of the big things on our club, and when guys miss a turn, yeah, that concerns me." The Phillies soon should get a clear indication of what's bothering Halladay. He flew with the team to New York after Sunday's game, but expects to be in Philadelphia to see team physician Michael Ciccotti early this week

He's had injuries before, earlier in his career. He'll be fine, might come back as the same ol' Roy, might be a little less. I'd take a slightly less effective Roy Halladay over pretty much any number 2 pitcher in the league. It's not a team that doesn't have another answer or two at starter. He does not have to dominate every outing for the Phils to contend.

Roy has a lot of miles of that arm.

Something is wrong with Big Roy. The guy has been a model of consistency for the last decade, and now, all of a sudden, he is average or worse. Phillies fans, this is what you should fear most.

It's called "age." It happens to each and every one of us. Even Jaime Moyer.

Jamie Moyer is a great story. But he is giving up lots of runs and is about done for the Rockies. The Phillies will probably not take comfort pitching Halladay if he is their "new" Jamie Moyer.

The Red-Headed Step Child is doing what Loser Woods does when he is going to miss the cut--- takes his marbles and goes home....

It is simple--- halliday took another HOLIDAY.....

This would be too tough loss a for the Phillies to absorb if he does go on the DL.

Only if Worley is taking a decent stay on the DL.

Again, they've had major injuries for the better part of the past 3 years. What's one more? Kendrick and Blanton are stepping their game up. Hamels is pitching better than most expected.

The Phillies may be in last place, but they're still over .500, and only 4 games out. The fact that the NL East is actually a competative division this year is making the Phillies look worse than they actually are. All that is needed is a bad run by the Nats and solid ball by the Phils, and this division is completely turned around again. Hell, the Braves and Mets are already starting to do their thing...

Halladay, not Halliday.

And that's the least of your problems. Your comment is also banal and factually incorrect.

The mets lose one game and they're starting to "do their thing"? They were at a season high 6 over .500 before losing to the Phils. While i dont think they can sustain this all year they haven't shown that they will fade just yet. And it's interesting to see you omit Miami from your contention conversation. They have been very good since their slow start and will probably be the team to beat along with the Nats as opposed to the Braves.

6 to 8 weeks in the DL,,,
