Considering that absolutely nasty finish he had with Philly I'm surprised a Philly fan would say that. It's debatable, I'd say the numbers favor Oswalt though.

In my eyes, and I'd say most of the general public, people would be more impressed by seeing Halladay, Lee, and Oswalt rather than Halladay, Lee, and Hamels.

Who had a nasty finish?

I don't know many Philly fans who like Oswalt more than Hamels. Oswalt's really just got more years of impressive pitching, which makes sense because he's 33 and Hamels is 27. But I think Hamels, when he's on (and he's almost always been on aside from 2009), is a better pitcher.

Nasty meaning good, Oswalt finished really well with the Phillies.

If you're gonna go with that logic, then the big 3 would be Halladay, Lee, and Utley. But it was fairly easy to assume you were talking about starting pitching and only starting pitching by your initial comment.

He did. It's simply a case where I prefer having Hamels out there. Oswalt's still very good, no doubt.

Impy: the Phils are looking at Jason Grilli. He played for Texas. Any thoughts?

Indeed I was, anyways the whole Big 'Whatever' is irrelevant because it's baseball, not basketball. 3 players cant anchor a team. Point is, the Phillies are going to be scary good.

Some unnatural occurrence would need to happen to bring them down to earth.

Or the very natural occurrence of an aging lineup. I'm still concerned about the offense. It was awful in the postseason.

I tend to almost forget about age in baseball as it's definitely the least relevant versus the other of the 4 major NA sports.

As for the Marlins, it almost looks like certainty that they will be entering the season with a large amount of question marks but still big potential (meh).

Who is going to play CF? As it stands now the converted 2B to LF to CF Chris Coghlan looks to fill that role.

Which Javier Vazquez do the Marlins get? Is he finally done for good? Can Ricky Nolasco actually pitch (no)? Will Leo Nunez be able to develop a new pitch and fill into the closing role that he lost last season? Will Matt Dominguez make it out of ST and play 3B?

Exciting exciting, baseball's just right around the corner!

You mean Jason "the human gas can" Grilli? He has a good fastball and strikes out a bunch of guys, but he walks a guy every other inning.

New York Mets will host 2013 MLB All-Star Game - MLB - SI.com

The home run derby will blow.

Oh, the pickoffs!

I loved how Harry needed to say "no hit, no run game" instead of no-hitter. He was the best. RIP.

Then again, the Mets have their new park too... MLB priority should've been towards new parks in their inaugural seasons.

Why has Citizens Bank Park not hosted an All-Star Game?

Stupid reasons... neither team in Florida has hosted an All-Star game.

Not exactly prime location... but also a really poor way to influence the game around there as well. It's in the MLB's best interest to host all-star games in new parks, IMO.
