Quote of the day
"It's no fun out there. It's like trying to hit nothing. He's an ace among aces." -- Cincinnati 1B Joey Votto, after Roy Halladay pitched a no-hitter in the first game of the NLDS
The Phillies were widely regarded as having the best pitching rotation for the playoffs. But Halladay’s opener was still over the top – especially against this year’s top hitting team in the NL. And with a day off on Thursday, the Reds get an extra day to stew about it.
Until Halladay’s no-no, the big story of the day was the trade of Randy Moss to Minnesota. When discussing the fantasy impact of the move, one analyst noted that Moss could play in 17 games this season, since Minnesota has already had its bye. While that is theoretically a nice advantage for Moss owners, remember that Moss took a goose egg last week – so arguably, he already had his bye week – without the concurrent rest, and while undoubtedly active in all fantasy lineups.
