Roy Halladay faces CC Sabathia in the Phillies Grapefruit League opener this afternoon at 1:05. Possible preview of Game 1 of the 2010 World Series?
Shane Victorino has been nursing a sore throwing shoulder and did not start against the Florida State Seminoles yesterday. John Mayberry Jr. took his place in CF.
David Herndon is attempting to break camp as the 12th member of the Phillies bullpen. That's cool, but who the hell is David Herndon? Oh yeah, he was that pitcher the Phils selected in the Rule 5 draft. See ya later, sorry kid.
College is Tough:
Phillippe Aumont allowed 5 runs in only 2/3 of an inning yesterday against a bunch of undergrads. Not exactly the best first impression.
"It's the first one. I can't do worse than that, so we're just going to have to build on that, make a joke out of it and move on. Obviously it didn't turn out how people wanted, fans, me and everybody else."
The Phils did manage to squeak out a victory, 13-6. Not that it really matters.
Pirate starters were 1-19 against the Yankees yesterday. Their only hit was an infield single by Andrew McCutchen in the first at-bat of the game.
