We’re Sorry Toronto, Doc Just Looks Better in Red

Okay, so we're not really sorry, but we are thankful and a tad bit understanding of the pain that comes along with losing a stud pitcher (Miss you, Cliff!).

The Phillies will kick off their strange "away" series this evening with the Blue Jays at Citizens Bank Park. It will be Doc Halladay's first regular season start against his former club that he spent all of those years with up in Canada. Roy, of course, is downplaying the fact that it is his former team in the other clubhouse, but clearly a few extra emotions will be felt on the mound in South Philly tonight.

We're keeping it brief here this evening. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 tonight with the USMNT set for a huge game tomorrow followed by the Union's first ever game at PPL Park on Sunday. And the Saturday and Sunday Phils-Blue Jays games, of course. Enjoy your weekend, Philly sports fans. There's a new Villain in town.
