PHILLIES: Howard Eskin Rips Roy Halladay

I know. It’s been a while.

But what way to start off the coverage of a the 2011 season than with some controversy 3 weeks to the day from the start of Spring Training.

The source of it all?

That would be the one, the only, Howard Eskin.

For those who don’t know him, first of all, your better off. Second of all, this isn’t too shocking.

In this particular case, the notoriously brash Philadelphia media personality apparently didn’t appreciate how the 2010 Cy Young Award winner has dealt with the media in the off-season. In addition to voicing such feelings of distain on his radio show, he then proceeded to criticize him on television citing a set of facts that were, for lack of a better word, incorrect.

Eskin went onto say that Halladay has refused all interview requests from local reports since the end of the 2010 season, including one during an autograph signing earlier this week. However, there is evidence, as Kyle Scott of the Crossing Broad sports blog pointed out, to the contrary.

Probably not the smartest move by Eskin to both negatively and inaccurately portray the greatest thing to hit Philadelphia since the start of Wawa, but hey, when has that ever stopped him.

Either way, great way to start off the season.
