Don't Expect the Phils to Make Big Mid-Season Move (Until They Make One)

Don't Expect the Phils to Make Big Mid-Season Move (Until They Make One)

"You will not see a major move," Ruben Amaro Jr. has said of the Phillies likelihood of a trade this summer. "But, but, but," you are likely saying. "What about a right-handed bat? Never believe what Rube says."

And then there's Buster Olney adding to the confusion, saying the Phillies appear to be looking for an outfield bat, per his sources.

Moral of the story: don't believe anything you read on the Internet. But you know Rube is going to look into making something happen. He'd be foolish not too. That also doesn't mean he'll get anything done. You know he's got to try though.

Morphine found in Roy Halladay's system before fatal plane crash

Roy Halladay had morphine in his system when the plane he was piloting crashed and he tragically died in November, according to Halladay's autopsy report, released Friday.

Zolpidem, the generic name for Ambien, and amphetamines were found in Halladay's system.

As TMZ points out via the Food and Drug Administration, the amount of Zolpidem found in Halladay's system (72 ng/ml) is more than enough to impair a driver and increase the risk of an accident.

Halladay had a blood alcohol content of 0.01, according to the autopsy report. 

The official cause of Halladay's death was blunt force trauma, with drowning a contributing factor.
