Pitchers and catchers reported Wednesday and took to the field Thursday for their first official practice. Position players are scheduled to report Monday and the first full practice will be Tuesday. A week later the Grapefruit League season begins at home against the Yankees.
Cole Hamels answered honestly that he hopes to play for a team that has a chance to win, and that (as already admitted by upper management) winning wasn’t going to happen here. This, of course, pissed off Phillies fans.
The rotation is set thru #4 – Hamels, Lee, Harang, Williams – only #5 appears to be up for grabs with Gonzalez, Billingsley, and Buchanan vying for that spot.
Have a go at these or anything else that interests you.
