Pointless Spring Training Update #1
*Yuniesky Betancout and Ryan Howard, each batting .500, are swinging the hot sticks early on in camp.
*Rule 5'er, Ender Inciarte, is carrying a 1.000 OBP, with 3 walks and 1 hit in 1 at bat.
*The Phillies are 0-2-1 through the first few Grapefruit League games. Oh, no!!!
*Darin Ruf is 0-8 with 2 K. This will not earn him a job.
*When Jonathan Papelbon isn't busy complaining about the lack of leadership in the clubhouse, he can be found serving up a shit-storm on the mound. Through 2/3 of an inning he has a 81.00 ERA and 10.50 WHIP. Best check yoself, before you rickety wreck yoself.
*Michael Stutes recorded 3 outs yesterday, all on deep fly balls to the warning track. Also gave up 2 runs.
*Delmon Young will likely begin the season on the DL, and there is where I hope he remains.
*Chase Utley has played in 2 games already. That is 2 more than the previous 2 spring trainings combined.
