Spring Training- 77 days away, a.k.a. way too fricken long! I'm floundering here waiting for any Phillies related news, so much so that I even got excited about some measly minor league signings (Lou Collier and Brent Abernathy...yahoo!). I could post today on the need for bullpen help, but that's been done. I could ponder Pat Burrell projections for next season batting behind Ryan Howard, but that'll get Los in a tizzy. I could make fun on Charlie Manuel and David Bell, but I need to mature. Instead I will focus today's effort on what the Phils will be doing to the competition next season in 2007- pooping all over them! The picture of Mike Lieberthal squatting over top of a National's player about to drop a Cleveland Steamer all over him is precisely what the Phils are going to do to the rest of the league. The rotation is better, the offense led the league last season and has slightly improved with the add-on of Helms, and the bench and bullpen are still being built. It's a sure thing, the Phils are going to the playoffs next season. And don't going raining on my parade today, because for just one f'n day I would like to picture the Phils on top of the baseball world.
About the maturing part above, and not making fun of Manuel or Bell...well screw that! This dog is leaving them a nice little present. Oh, I'm so juvenile.
