    It's now one of 1,086 for Dave Brundage. But the ironPigs' 5-4, 11-inning win over Syracuse Saturday night was a memorable one for their first-year manager, in more ways than one. It was his first in a Lehigh Valley uniform, giving him a Triple-A...

  • Halladay candid when talking about himself and the team

     
    I thought Roy Halladay was pretty candid after Tuesday night's loss. He spoke for more than 13 minutes and answered questions on everything from Carlos Ruiz's ejection (see the video we have posted on our Web site) to his health......
  • ROSTER MOVE CHATTER, INJURY UPDATES, WIP TIME
