Tomorrow, the Phillies officially kick off their spring of exhibition games with a match-up against the Florida State University Seminoles. J.A. Happ is set to start the game, with a cavalcade of youngsters (including new prospect Phillippe Aumont) to follow.
Thursday, the crown jewel of the Phillies offseason, Roy Halladay, will start against the World Series champion New York Yankees. Even typing that makes me itchy.
All due respect to Mr. Happ, but to commemorate the occasion of Halladay’s first “start” for the redstripers, we here at Phillies Nation will be hosting a live chat. The game will air live on Comcast Sportsnet, beginning at 1 p.m. EST, and we’ll be here providing insight and commentary, as well as fielding questions and comments from you, the PN loyal.
Join myself, Pat Gallen and the rest of the Phillies Nation crew right here Thursday afternoon. Come armed with questions if you’d like, and prepare to enjoy the unveiling of Roy Halladay as the latest, prized addition to the Phillies family.
