The Madness Continues
*Click on image for larger view.
No upset in the 1st round of the Phield this year, as We Should Be GMs passed through onto the 2nd stage beating Holy KK!. Now we take on Phillies Insider, so once again please show support by casting your vote before Monday at 5 pm at The Phield. No email required this time, just click on the link and vote in the poll. We're eyeballing a Sweet 16 match-up against Phillies Nation.
Poll: (4) Phillies Insider vs. (5) We Should Be GMs
Cole Hamels sucked (5 runs and 10 baserunners allowed in 3.2 IP), but Baez Sucks pitched 2.1 scoreless innings to pick up his 2nd win of the spring and drop his ERA to 0.93. Mayberry clubbed his 5th homerun and Victorino his 2nd. The Phillies are now 15-8 in Grapefruit League action this spring.
*Blanton takes the bump today against the Yankees and Cheeseburger Sabathia.
*It's looking more and more like the Opening Day lineup will feature Wilson Valdez at 2nd base and Ross Gload in RF. Brett Myers is the starer for the Astros and is right handed, so it seems Manuel wants the left handed bat of Gload instead of Mayberry or Francisco's. Yeah, this lineup went from the best, to good, to okay, to ugh in a hurry.
*Country music star Kenny Chesney stopped by Phils camp last week to visit Manuel and Halladay.
