*Chase Utley has finally started to respond positively to treatment on his f'd up knee. According to Rube he's making "baby steps", but that's better than nothing. Opening Day is still a long-shot and DL looks likely. Sidebar- have you ever wondered about the term baby steps? Babies crawl and once they actually start stepping aren't they referred to as toddlers?
*John Mayberry Jr. is batting .353/1.200 with 3 doubles, 4 homeruns, 6 runs, 9 rbi, and 2 stolen bases.
*Double play machinist (on D and O) Wilson Valdez is batting a cool .500 this spring (12-24).
*Ryan Madson got 6 outs yesterday and all came via the mighty K.
*Baez Sucks hasn't allowed a run yet this spring in 5.1 innings (this excludes his B game debacle). Neither has Roy Halladay, so I guess they're equals right?
*A trio of troublesome springs to keep an eye on- Jimmy Rollins (.216/.527), Placido Polanco (.212/.520) and Brad Lidge (9.00 ERA/2.00 WHIP).
*Darth Santana is likely out for the season. Ah shucks!
*Bryce Harper has been optioned to minor league camp.
*There's a lot of hurting players out there.
*Looking forward to seeing where my Bucknell Bison get seeded in the NCAA tourney today.
