Phillies invade Disney

Tuesday, March 4, 2008, 1:01 PM
Kyle Kendrick gets his second start of spring training today against the Braves at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex. Tom Gordon is also scheduled to pitch. It's been overcast for most of the morning. Forecast calls for rain later. Hopefully it'll hold off so we can get this game in. In the paper... Read more

Good Morning: Moyer makes second appearance; Prospects Savery, Outman also in action

Monday, March 3, 2008, 11:12 AM
First things first: We're in the middle of the B-Game here at Bright House Field, and Jamie Moyer is his usual self, scattering three hits through three innings while not allowing a run. He could get up around 50-60 pitches today against the Pirates. Amazingly, there are fans here. I say "amazingly"... Read more

What to make of the Cole Hamels situation

Sunday, March 2, 2008, 10:56 PM
Well, I guess for starters, there really isn't a situation. Cole Hamels thinks the Phillies low-balled him with a $500,000 salary for the 2008 season. The Phillies think the price is more than fair. Both sides have their reasons, which we'll get into in a second. But whatever Hamels says, the fact... Read more

Hamels: Phillies contract is "low blow"

Sunday, March 2, 2008, 5:35 PM
Cole Hamels has one hope: that Phillies fans don't wake up tomorrow thinking he is greedy. That said, the left-hander made it very clear today that he feels disrespected with the $500,000 salary the Phillies renewed his contract at today. Calling it a "low-blow," Hamels said he was "caught... Read more

Eaton: Shoulder OK; sore back a "non-issue"

Sunday, March 2, 2008, 12:55 PM
Adam Eaton's shoulder, which gave him problems throughout last season, felt fine after throwing about 30 pitches in the Phillies' Grapefruit League game against the Yankees today. His back, however, was a little sore, as it has been for much of spring training. But Eaton said he wasn't concerned... Read more

Lidge: Knee feels better than it did before the injury

Saturday, March 1, 2008, 3:33 PM
We caught up with Brad Lidge today, and the report from the closer sounds positive. He said his knee feels better than it did even before he tweaked his knee last Saturday, forcing him to undergo arhtroscopic knee surgery Monday in Philly. Lidge said he thinks he's "on the early side" of... Read more

Spring has sprung; Eaton, Durbin make their debut

Saturday, March 1, 2008, 2:08 PM
Let's get right to it. 1) The atmosphere: In a word, beautiful. High 70's, partly cloudy (or is it partly sunny), packed house here at Bright House Field. The Yankees are in town, which means cultures are colliding here in Clearwater. Surprisingly, no fights yet out at the Tiki Bar in left field. 2)... Read more
