Roy Halladay Out For Six to Eight Weeks
Things continue to get worse for the Phillies on the injury front. The "ace" of the staff Roy Halladay is out for six to eight weeks with a lat strain. To make matters worse, they won't be able to replace him with Roy Oswalt since he just signed with the Texas Rangers.
In a best case scenario, Halladay will return to the team around the All-Star break, but chances are he won't return until late July.
Roy Oswalt Signs With the Texas Rangers
Former Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt will not be returning to the Phillies as was rumored. Instead, Oswalt has signed with the Texas Rangers for an $8 million prorated deal, which will come out to $4 million if he makes the team before July 1st. He will also get a $1 million bonus if he makes 10 starts.
Terrell Owens Cut By Indoor League Team...Burns Another Bridge
Former 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills, and Bengals wide receiver Terrell Owens has hit rock bottom. He has been cut by the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He was cut because he missed a visit to a children's hospital and refused to play in two upcoming road games.
He will forfeit his remaining salary and partial ownership in the team.
Terrell Owens has suffered major financial woes recently due to child support payments and poor financial decisions. He reportedly pays $45,000 in child support payments each month and was recently taken to court for being $20,000 behind on payments for one of his kids.
Now that Terrell Owens has burned yet another bridge, it is clear that he still doesn't "get it." He may never get another chance to burn another bridge.
