I was looking at it, like, 'Two-one-five (area code), that can't be too important. It's probably just a sales call or something.' Then, again, it rings. Two-one-five. I think... Read more

Leftovers: Revere, Rollins, Stutes and more

Wednesday, February 20, 2013, 1:09 PM
A relatively short practice for the Phillies today. Tomorrow is the annual golf tournament, so that will be a short workout too. A few things that didn't fit anywhere else: 1) I watched Mike Stutes face hitters in live batting practice yesterday, and I can tell you that if he does not make the Opening... Read more
