Week One Rotation

Spring training games start Wednesday.  Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer released the rotation for the first week of pre-season play.  The starters will throw about 45 pitches, but it is a sign that the regular season is right around the corner.

Wednesday, March 3 vs. Florida State University:  J.A Happ, Phillipe Aumont, Drew Naylor, Yohan Flande, Joe Savery, Jesus Sanchez, and David Herdon.
Thursday, March 4 vs. New York Yankees:  Roy Halladay, Kyle Kendrick, Jose Contreras, Andrew Carpenter, and Sergio Escalona. Game will be televised (tape delay) on Comcast Sportsnet and MLB Network.
Friday, March 5 at Toronto Blue Jays:  Cole Hamels and Jamie Moyer.
Saturday, March 6 at Pittsburgh Pirates:  Joe Blanton

Happ will also pitch on Sunday, Kendrick will pitch on Monday, and Halladay will pitch on Tuesday.

Each pitcher is only going to pitch about two innings, but let the Grapefruit League begin!

    As to the 76ers, it always kills me that they go on these late season winning streaks when they need more ping pong balls.

    Thinking about it the player most in need of a good Spring in Kyle Kendrick so thrilled to see him slotted behind Halladay. He has a chance to win a slot at the back of the rotation or in the bullpen and can’t afford to not make the 25 man roster with all the kids capable of getting a call-up in the next year or so.

    Looks like the Phils Yanks game will be shown live (1:05) on CSN, and replayed on MLB at 7:00?
