Phils Announce Rotation 2.0

The fans who got tickets for the home opener were given a real treat today.

The Phillies announced their starting rotation for the season. And in a move popular with many, the lefties will be split like last season.

Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Vance Worley will take the mound for the Phillies in their opening series against the Pirates in Pittsburgh. That means Cole Hamels will pitch in the home opener on April 9 against the Miami Marlins, a real treat for the fans.

Joe Blanton’s first start could be skipped. He’s slated to pitch April 11 but with there being a day off on April 6, Halladay could make his second start on that date.

On March 14, I wrote about how it would be a good idea for the Phillies to split the lefties, keeping a balance in the rotation while maintaining a clear advantage against opposing teams in every series.
