Screen shot 2011-06-05 at 9.59.25 AMMorning Wood is a hard news roundup for your Philadelphia Phillies. Good or bad, it will show up every morning.

The Phillies lost last night, 6-3.

“By the bottom of the second inning, I was like, ‘Please don’t hit me the ball,’ "Rollins said after the Phils’ 6-3 loss.


He won't go on the DL… yet.

Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton has completely ripped off Halladay's motion. Over the winter, he watched video of Doc and now mimics his entire motion. J-Roll™ got a chuckle out of it.

John Mayberry Jr. was back up with the team because the Phillies placed Ross Gload on paternity leave. Congrats to Ross on the birth of his child, but have there been two less hard injuries than a bad hip and paternity leave? Morning sickness, maybe?

Today, real Doc is on the mound- enough of this bullshit.
