Howard's number to be retired, plus today's line-ups

Wednesday, March 10, 2010, 9:24 AM
Ryan Howard is already getting his number retired. . .by the Lakewood BlueClaws. The Phillies' low-Class-A affiliate will retire the No. 29 Howard wore in 2002, when he hit .280 with 19 home runs and 87 RBI in 135 games for the BlueClaws. The ceremony is scheduled to take place on Sept. 2. The Phillies... Read more

Drabek to face Phillies tomorrow

Tuesday, March 9, 2010, 5:24 PM
Tomorrow's game against the Blue Jays will carry with it a little more intrigue than an ordinary Grapefruit League tilt. That's because the Phillies are scheduled to face a young Toronto righthander named Kyle Drabek. Sound familiar? Drabek, of course, was the centerpiece of the three-prospect-package... Read more

It's only the second week of spring, but. . .

Tuesday, March 9, 2010, 12:16 PM
. . .here's a little stat for you. Heading into Roy Halladay's start against the Braves tonight, the six starters who are likely to have a spot in the Phillies' rotation this season have combined to allow just four runs in 18.1 innings this spring. They have struck out 15, walked four, and allowed... Read more

A very positive outing by Cole Hamels

Friday, March 5, 2010, 2:23 PM
At the beginning of spring training, I was pretty skeptical about the prospect of Cole Hamels' incorporating a cutter into his repertoire in time for the start of the season. When Hamels first reported, pitching coach Rich Dubee and manager Charlie Manuel both expressed some doubt about whether the... Read more

Moyer looks good in spring debut

Friday, March 5, 2010, 11:36 AM
Lefthander Jamie Moyer, who is battling for the fifth starter job in the Phillies' rotation, saw his first action of the spring this morning in Clearwater. Moyer pitched three scoreless innings in a B game against Toronto. He allowed three hits with three strikeouts and no walks. In all, Moyer threw... Read more

An interesting day for pitching

Friday, March 5, 2010, 10:11 AM
Covering baseball can warp one's perspective. For instance, I'm much more interested in watching Ryan Vogelsong and Antonio Bastardo today than I was before Roy Halladay's debut yesterday. In fact, today's pitching line-up at Dunedin is an intriguing one, featuring lefthander Cole Hamels in his first... Read more

Happ vs. the numbers, Howard vs. breaking balls

Wednesday, March 3, 2010, 9:44 AM
A month or two ago (it all blends together at this point), we took a look at some of the skepticism surrounding J.A. Happ's rookie season. Over the past couple of weeks, I've tried to dig a little deeper into Happ's performance last season, when he finished in the Top 10 in the National League in ERA... Read more
