Roy Halladay Is Your NL All-Star Starter

Bruce Bochy tells it like it is, "When you talk about the best, this guy is always at the top. It's been like this the last few years. So I'm really looking forward to seeing him start the game, and I'm excited that I could name him the starter."

Sadly, we won’t get to see Cole Hamels relieve Cliff Lee who relieved Roy Halladay in Tuesday’s MLB All-Star game, but the latter part of that is still feasible*.

National League Manager Bruce Bochy named Roy Halladay the team’s starter for tomorrow’s All-Star Game out in Arizona and he couldn’t be more thrilled to have him.

“When you talk about the best, this guy is always at the top,” Bochy said of Halladay. “It’s been
like this the last few years. So I’m really looking forward to seeing
him start the game, and I’m excited that I could name him the starter.”

CSN’s Jim Salisbury passes this info along, “Bochy says Halladay can go at least 2 inn. He said he received no restriction from Phils.”

Clearly the Phillies wouldn’t be real thrilled with Doc tossing more than two innings, but then again, that could only be like 11 pitches.

Doc will go up against Los Angeles Angels’ Jered Weaver for the American League.
