Philadelphia Phillies: Roy Halladay and Carlos Ruiz to be traded?

We are more than 10 days away from the waiver trade deadline on August 31. If all goes well Roy Halladay could start for the Phillies this Sunday. If he performs as expected it's still possible that he could be traded. 

Carlos Ruiz' bat has shown signs of life. He's clearly another trade candidate, due to his also expiring contract. 
While both men would have to clear waivers, the idea of either being traded isn't certain. It's also not a stretch.

Those who have been following the blog posts about my writing efforts know that my illustrated children's book has taken time and patience to create and produce. 

After successfully reaching a fund-raising goal, we are now set to release our book Maddie: Teaching Tolerance with a Smile!!!

This book is about the life of Madison Woytovich and the organization CAP (Children's Alopecia Projectthat her father Jeff Woytovich founded a number of years ago.

Three other people also share in the creation of this book:

Maddie's mother, Betsy Woytovich, served as an excellent editor. Her support was invaluable. 

Patrick O'Brien (who is my cousin) was the initial artist who established the visual reality that became Maddie: Teaching Tolerance with a Smile. Without his generous contributions, ongoing advice and support, this book might not have been born. 

Melissa Lascala (who served as my main illustrator) offered a sincere creative presence that saw this project through to completion.  

-->>>50% of all proceeds from this book will be donated to CAP. 

Thank you to Stacey Stauffer (Fox 29 Philadelphia). She interviewed Maddie Woytovich, her parents (Jeff and Betsy Woytovich) and me recently about the latest chapter in this inspiring story. The feature will be aired during the 10 p.m. broadcast on July 30 (which is the date of today's post). 

-->>Here's a video link to Stacey's wonderful feature. 

Professional reporters and video journalists are vital in an ever-changing media world. Stacey and the Fox staff were first-rate.
