Roy Halladay: the Doctor is in

Roy Halladay claims he’s “working on his stamina” this spring.  The new addition to the Philadelphia Phillies rotation pitched three shutout innings Tuesday, striking out five Atlanta Braves during his second spring appearance in a Phillies uni.

The Phanatic, Green Man and everyone in the City of Brotherly Love could not be happier.

Halladay, acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays this winter, has tossed five innings total this spring without allowing a run. He says all he’s thinking about is “throwing strikes” and that “the rest will come.”  What else is he going to bring?  Magical fairy dust?  Unicorns?  It doesn’t get much better than this guy.

The Colorado Rockies also had a pretty good day yesterday, crushing the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-0 like Frank McCourt plans to get crushed every month by his estranged wife, who’s seeking $1 millon per month in alimony.  Yikes.

Ubaldo Jiminez, the Rockies’ projected Opening Day starter, was anything but rusty during his three scoreless innings.  Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda, experimenting with a curveball and changeup,  surrendered two runs — one earned — on two hits over two innings of work during his first spring start.

Rockies left fielder Seth Smith had a big day with three hits and three RBI and Jonathan Herrera drove in a couple of runs as well.
