CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury caught up with Halladay to get his thoughts on Charlie Manuel's firing. Halladay was surprisingly candid stating that he has faith that Ryne Sandberg will do a good job and that some things in the clubhouse were being "overlooked" like players arriving on time and taking extra batting practice, to name a few.
This all coming after Halladay allowed seven hits, two runs (one earned), three walks, and four strikeouts over six innings of work with 90 pitches (52 strikes, 38 balls) for Single-A Lakewood on Tuesday night.
Halladay underwent shoulder surgery on May 15th and began throwing from a mound after the All-Star break. Before his surgery, Halladay was 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP in seven starts this season with the Phillies.
Halladay did not appear to be bashing Manuel but did point out things that are cause for concern - a sense of complacency if you will. A team that is 55-70 coming off of an 81-81 season has no room to be complacent and the term "heads will roll" seems appropriate. We already saw that with the firing of Manuel last Friday.
