Because the gentleman who is wearing number 10 and who has hit four homers and driven in 9 RsBI in the last three games doesn't much resemble the chap who had been stationed there earlier in the year.
Incredibly, it is Vernon Wells, who in only 78 games this season leads the team in both homers (14) and RsBI (60). What are the chances that a healthy Vernon could keep a pace like that over a full season?
It goes without saying...
But we'll say it anyway: Roy Halladay (six innings, two runs, seven strikeouts) is awesome.
We remember back when Roy was 23 (hey! same age as Ricky Romero!) and he was getting knocked all over the place. We were pretty convinced back then that Kelvim Escobar was a star, Chris Carpenter was going to be a mediocre number four pitcher and that Halladay may end up being a washout.
Funny how things change.
