Philadelphia Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee says that there could be a number of factors for SP Roy Halladay's slow start, but Dubee said Halladay still has the stuff that could make him a big winner. "There might be a tick difference in his velocity but it's the consistent execution of the pitches," Dubee said. "He is just not completing his delivery as he has in the past for whatever reason."

Andy Martino, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Phillies SP Antonio Bastardo impressed manager Charlie Manuel with his six-inning, one-run outing Tuesday, June 2. "It wasn't like his command was great," Manuel said. "What happened was, he had stuff. He was up and down, and he might just have been wild enough to be effective. But now his fastball is definitely good enough. He surprised me with his fastball. I didn't realize he could throw that hard. I saw his slider in spring training. He's got a good slider, and he's got a good change-up." The Phillies aren't sure what Bastardo's role will be in the future, though they haven't ruled him out as a reliever. Pitching coach Rich Dubee said Bastardo's 95 mph fastball and effective slider could make him an effective reliever.
