This week's PhilliesCast

Hey everyone, this is Jonathan Tannenwald, host of the PhilliesCast.

Todd let me come on here for a moment so I could tell you that the latest edition of the PhilliesCast is now available for you to download. You can listen to it by clicking on the audio player below, and you can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes by clicking here.

Also, please feel free to contact me if you have questions about comments on the blog or anything else. I do a lot of the work with the blogs on so it really matters a lot to me that you guys are having problems with it. I promise that I and the tech team are working as hard and as fast as we can to get everything fixed, and I really do mean that.

I will say that the registration system is the same as the system you use to comment on Inquirer and Daily News stories, which means that you do have to do a few more things than you did on Movable Type. And one side effect of that is that your posts do get run through a filter that blocks some of the offensive stuff that the old system allowed.

I promise, though, that if one of the Phillies strikes out late in a game or gives up a home run to the Mets, you'll have plenty of ways to vent on here.

Anyway, here's the show. On it, Todd and I discuss the impact Brad Lidge's knee injury will have on the bullpen, whether Ryan Howard's salary arbitration win will hurt the Phillies' ability to sign more players, and the pitchers who will take the mound in the first Spring Training games of the year.
