Notes from the workout

Good morning from the first post-clinch workout at Citizens Bank Park. Just a few newsy bullet points before I head down to the field. --Charlie Manuel said that he had not yet made any decisions about the World Series rotation, and would meet with his staff and Ruben Amaro tonight and tomorrow. We can assume Cliff Lee will be the Game 1 starter and probably not be wrong. --Sounds like Pedro Martinez will get a start, but Manuel wouldn’t confirm that. --He also said that Joe Blanton and J.A. Happ could very well begin another series in the bullpen, as they did for the previous two rounds. --The Phillies will see live pitching in a simulated game Sunday, which Manuel feels is essential to staying sharp during the long layoff. I’ll bring you more news as we learn it.
