Good News, St. Louis!

The Philadelphia Phillies have been considered World Series contenders from the beginning of the season because they have Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels in their starting rotation. Friday night, the St. Louis Cardinals will have to deal with Halladay for a while, but why face one of them when you can face all three!

Charlie says Cliff & Cole are available but he'd likely go with Cliff first.

Lee threw 110 pitches last Sunday, while Hamels threw 117 pitches on Tuesday. There's no guarantee that either of them pitch tonight, but the option is there, which boosts the depth behind Halladay. Who, of course, is the last pitcher in baseball behind whom you would need to have depth.
