Doc Halladay sat down with the media today in Clearwater to talk shop and after reading quote after quote from the ace, he seems like the pitching version of Chase Utley. He says all the right things and it comes off sincere. Oh, and he tries to get to work by 5:45 a.m.
On what he is looking forward to most: "Postseason.
For me that's the ultimate. Obviously there's no guarantee, but that's
the driving force for me right now and the biggest reason. It was never
about changing teamamtes, changing environments, changing cities. It
was about wanting to pitch in October. That's what I look forward to
here the most. Like I said there is no guarantees, but based on what
they've done in the past and the guys who are in that clubhouse, I look
forward to having that chance."
Man, this season is going to be fun.

What a week it's been for Chris Christie.
After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."
He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list.
"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said.
(Three fire emojis).
"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.
He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.
It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.
The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."
Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right?
Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:
After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:
[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
