Morning misc: Romero throws

Wednesday, March 17, 2010, 10:38 AM
I have at least one thing in common with Brad Lidge -- I'll be sitting down to do my NCAA Bracket today. The Phils closer was doing his in the clubhouse today. I'll probably be doing mine just before game time. My gut-reaction bracket after the Selection Show had Baylor in the Final Four, but I was... Read more

Quick update before the Phillies (6-4-1) square off against the Tigers (7-6). Placido Polanco seemed thrilled with how well his sprained right knee felt today, less than 24 hours after he needed the support of two trainers to get off Mc Kenchnie Field in Bradenton.

Cliff Lee ejected for head-hunting

Lot of stuff going on with the Phillies here today, and an ex-Phillie is making news as well. Cliff Lee was ejected from a spring training game today for allegedly throwing at the head of Diamondbacks catcher Chris Snyder.

Olney defends story

Monday, March 15, 2010, 6:05 PM
I know I said earlier that I wasn't going to devote too much attention to the Ryan Howard/Albert Pujols talk. But Buster Olney, who wrote the story for ESPN yesterday, appeared on Philly sports talk station 97.5 The Fanatic earlier today. And because Amaro has labelled the story "irresponsible... Read more

Polanco relieved with diagnosis; Calls it "day-to-day"

Monday, March 15, 2010, 1:58 PM
Placido Polanco was nervous when he first limped off the field. The Phillies' new third baseman had lost a pop-fly in the sun, then stumbled over the back of the pitcher's mound while looking skyward. He felt his knee buckle, then fell to the ground as Phillies trainers ran out to the field. "It... Read more

Monday, March 15, 2010, 11:09 AM
It was Jamie Moyer's third straight appearance in a "B" game, but it was different from the first two in a couple of ways: First, instead of the minor leaguers he had faced in the first two games, he pitched against a line-up that featured seven Blue Jays regulars, including Lyle Overbay...

In today's Daily News, Paul Hagen takes a look at the unsettled situation in the Phillies bullpen, where over the past few days young lefthanders Antonio Bastardo and Sergio Escalona have each experienced Grapefruit League hiccups.

A closer look at Placido Polanco's offense

Friday, March 12, 2010, 9:47 AM
A storm system hovering over Florida has prompted the cancellation of both of the Phillies' split-squad games today. They will be back on the field tomorrow at Bright House Field, weather permitting. Placido Polanco has a career .761 OPS, ranking him in the neighborhood of immortals like Todd Hundley... Read more

Line-ups for today and tomorrow

Thursday, March 11, 2010, 12:14 PM
The weather is warm and damp, and the sky is gray, and the lights are on at Bright House Field at 12:08 in the afternoon. But the tarp is off the field and there is no rain falling, so there doesn't appear to be a reason why today's Grapefruit League game between the Phillies and the Tigers will not... Read more
