07:06 AM ET 05.06 | Things have gone from bad to worse in the world of Roy Halladay, who took the mound Sunday for what might be the last time for a spell. Of [Philadelphia's] next 22 games, 19 will feature opponents who entered Sunday with a winning record. They are 5-14 against such teams this season, a winning percentage that, if maintained, would leave them around 22-32 on the final day of May. The arrival at such a juncture would force the Phillies to consider turning their attention to 2014 and beyond. ... The first of those conversations took place on Sunday, after which the Phillies announced plans to send veteran righthander Roy Halladay to the disabled list for an unknown amount of time.

Philly demonstrates on a daily basis why they own the moniker: Most losses in MLB History. Morons of the NL East.... with Mumbles manuel and the Rube at the helm... Dudley Dickerson on First Base--- when he isn't making Three Stooges movies... and the rest of the cowards known as the Sillies... what a toilet of a city...

I hope Halladay doesn't hang on for years to come. He had a great career, It's time to hang them up. Philly is the greatest sports town in the country but they won't tolerate any athelete past their prime trying to stick around and turn in sub par performances.

Who'd a thunk they be fighting the Marlins for 4th place.

Hopefully Ruben starts the rebuilding process during the trade deadline and start rebuilding our farm system. After the Phils won it all in 2008, they went for it for the next 5 years, and its just cyclical that we have a roster of aging players. Utley, Ruiz, and Michael Young are all on the last year of their deals, so they should be pretty easy to move. Rollins will have 1 year left and Lee will have 2 years left, so they can be moved, but it will be a bit tougher. The only contract that is unmovable is Howards, as he has 3 years left. It was a great run, but it had to end sometime.

Sounds like Halliday needs to get his shoulder straightened out first. If he needs surgery to fix his shoulder it could end his career. there have been several pitchers have shoulder surgery but shoulder often times does not hold up and at Hallidays age He may have pitched his last game.
