Video: Ruben Amaro Jr. Says Roy Halladay has as long as he needs

Without a doubt, the biggest question facing the Phillies at
this moment is whether or not Roy Halladay can rebound. The second biggest question
is how many times can they afford to trot Doc out there ever fifth day when he’s
completely ineffective?





Jim Salisbury asked Ruben Amaro Jr. just that on Wednesday’s
edition of Philly Sports Talk. The Phils’ general manager stood strong in
support Halladay, which is probably to be expected with a player of his
standing, although I don’t think “forever” was necessarily the answer the
judges were looking for.

(Okay, so he didn’t actually say “forever.”)

It’s nice that the organization believes in and backs
Halladay, and I’m not sure he’s done yet, either. That said, the way things
have been going for Doc so far this year, the Phillies need to start at least
considering Plan B. Regardless of what RAJ says, they probably already are.

But for now it seems Halladay has time to find himself – and
if Amaro is to be believed, he’s got awhile yet.

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.

The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.

Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.

The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.

It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.

While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.

This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.

The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Watch: Joel Embiid can't get over how much he trusts the process

Joel Embiid really trusts the process. 

And he'll tell you as much over and over.

In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.

By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.

And he does. Trust the process.
