Victorino's Crash, Doc's Gem & The Phield

Hey have you heard about the Phillies injury woes this spring? Oh, you haven't. Then wake the eff up! Polly, Lidge, Utley, and Brown are all hobbled or shutdown. Now The Flying Hawaiian flew right into Raul Ibanez and bruised his face and had to leave yesterday's game. The boo-boo is nothing serious, but any minor ache or pain right now is just a bit scary. Don't worry too much though, Victorino is accustomed to colliding with things.

Doc's Gem:
We are all well aware that Roy Halladay is a total beast, but going 7.2 innings in spring against the BoSox allowing only 1 run is awesome. Doc made quick work of a lineup that included Ellsbury, Pedroia, Ortiz, Saltalamacchia, Cameron, and Lowrie. This is the type of game he could have finished in the regular season, but no need to be hero now when wins don't count. The W did push the Phils Grapefruit League record to 16-9. Halladay is now 3-0 on the spring with a minuscule ERA of 0.48 and WHIP of 0.96. Love him!

The Phield:

We Should Be GMs has advanced to the 3rd round of this year's March Madness of Phillies blogs in The Phield. We've defeated Holy KK! and Phillies Insider, and now set our sights on Phillies Nation. We're definitely playing the part of the underdog in this match-up, but nevertheless we'd still like to be well represented in the polls. So please go cast your vote for We Should Be GMs...from multiple computers. Voting ends Thursday at 5 pm.
*Vote for We Should Be GMs Here*

As The Phield puts it- "Phillies Nation and WSBGMs move onto round three as two of the oldest blogs in existence – an Ohio St/Kenucky tilt, so to speak."

voted. and Castillo still hasn't arrived

Castillo is already a hot button issue among Phils fans and now he's having travel/hotel problems. Not a good start.

Nikole said...

It's a 4 hour drive for him from mets camp to phillies camp. Why is he flying?
What does "hotel confusion" have to do with his plane flight.

GM-Carson said...

Is Cliff Lee's poor spring at least a bit worrisome?

I'd like to say no with 100% certainty, but a very small part of me is leary.

GM-Carson said...

Lee settled down today, going 6 allowing 2.

Phils won 5-4 over the Jays. Now 17-9 on the spring.
