2011 Topps Diamond Duos #DD-1 Roy Halladay & Roy Oswalt

Mets 7, Phillies 2
Game 7 - Monday Night, April 8th in Philadelphia
Record - 2-5, 4th Place, 4 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Roy Halladay continued his 1987 Joe Cowley impersonation as the Phillies lost the series opener to the Mets, 7-2.

What It Means:  It means I need to try to stay positive.  Halladay will figure it out again.  The offense just needs to get going.  It's still early.

What Went Wrong:  Halladay couldn't record an out in the fifth inning and was pulled from the game.  His final line - 4 innings, 6 hits, 7 runs, 3 walks and 3 strikeouts.  Both of Halladay's runners inherited by Chad Durbin came around to score, meaning Durbin has allowed all of his seven inherited runners to score so far this season.

The offense managed four hits and went 1 for 6 with runners in scoring position.

Featured Card:  I haven't heard yet if these Tweets from Roy Oswalt's account were accidental or just really poor timing on his part.  Both came out a few innings after Halladay's unceremonious departure.  The 2011 season suddenly seems so long ago.

In my fantasy league, Halladay was just traded even up for John Axford.

Ouch. I gotta believe Halladay's going to turn this thing around.
