An interesting discussion topic was brought up on 610 WIP’s Midday Show earlier this afternoon in terms of should the Phillies want Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee pitching significant innings in next week’s MLB All-Star Game. We know that Cole Hamels won’t be pitching due to his start on Sunday against the Braves, but Roy Halladay is likely one of the candidates to start the All-Star Game for the NL.
Phils pitching coach Rich Dubee has said (video below) that he doesn’t really like the idea of Roy starting the game, which would mean Doc would pitch two innings of work on Tuesday. But if any team should be seriously looking for a National League victory and subsequent home field advantage for the senior circuit, it should be the Phillies, right?
Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee have clearly pitched a ton of innings thus far this season, but wouldn’t you want them potentially earning the Phils home field advantage in the Fall Classic if the team were to get there?
