March Madness sweeps the nation every time this year, and in the Phillies blogsphere it's no different. Some guys with too much time on their hands (pot calling the kettle black) have created a 64 team bracket of Phillies blogs to determine the best of the best (aptly called The Phield). WSBGMs drew a 5 seed, and voting for our region takes place tomorrow from 8-8. Check back here tomorrow for a resume of WSBGMs and a link to vote.
When David Herndon was selected from the Los Angeles Angels in the Rule 5 draft I did not anticipate him having a young boys chance on the Neverland Ranch, but it appears he may be making the Opening Day squad due to performance and necessity. Just yesterday, lefty Sergio Escalona was optioned to the minors, leaving bullpen sure shots Ryan Madson, Jose Contreras, Chad Durbin, and Danys Baez to 4 of the 7 spots. JC Romero and Brad Lidge seem DL bound, so that leaves Herndon, Antonio Bastardo, and the "loser" of the 5th spot in the rotation battle (Moyer/Kendrick) to fill the remaining 3.
