Bartolo Colon P

Your gameday beer: Yards Love Stout
Victory Lager

Anything from Yards is a friend of mine. They just make damn good beers. My favorite is Yards ESA, but this Love Stout is intriguing. It’s a very dark beer with a dark head that has a chocolate and coffee aroma. For you java lovers, this could be gold.-Pat Gallen

    This is the longest pre-game ceremony for a ST game that I have ever seen, sheesh.

    Those blues stripes up the armpit have got to go.

    Steinbrenner’s grandaughter did a better job on the national anthem than Christina Aguilera. But I agree ridiculous long pomp and ceremony for ST game

    That Orr kid looks fast as hell.
    Ibanez still looks like he’s standing too far off the plate to catch up to that outside fastball.
    Howard had a nice AB going the other way the whole time.

    Hamels looks as solid as a pitcher can in his first Spring Training game.

    Great rip by Ben Fran.

    Cole: I know it’s been a long time, but the objective is to get the ball between the shoulders and the knees. Sheesh.

    Cole looked pretty good for first time out. 1 hit 1 run 1 BB 2K-

    Indians signed Durbin- we really didn’t need him.

    PhaninChi- I agree, Orr can move.

      When I made that comment, he had just thrown 6 balls in a row. He settled down nicely.

        Hi Tracey how are you doing? I didn’t even see your comment before i posted.

        @Lefty: I’m doing OK! Looking forward to another season of Phillies baseball! Don’t let the fact that I fell asleep watching this game fool you :^D

    I find it hilarious how YES didn’t even identify the opposing team before they took the field. At that point, I said, “We can deal with the minute delay. We can’t deal with the Yankees broadcasters.”

    Franzke and Andersen all the way.

    Cole did pretty well for his first time out.

    I’m liking what I’m seeing so far.

    I’m looking at the Danys Baez pitching line in the “B” game – two thirds of an inning while allowing 5 Hs, a walk, and 5 runs. It looks like the dude is already in mid-season form.

    I’m Ted Bell.

    just spring training games. Nice to see Ben Fran get a hit off a RH early on.

  13. Tracey

    Love these spring training games — I don’t recognize enough names to know which team is which!

  14. Tracey

    February 26, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    Wow… that Barfield moves pretty well!

    tracy you are not the only one these yankee anouncers do not even know who is playing for the Phillies. They have not mentioned any changes for the phillies all game they suck.

    • Tracey

      February 26, 2011 at 3:48 pm

      Actually, I’m listening to our local radio; just have the TV on for the video.

    For a ST game this Ump has a pretty small strike zone. but at least it is for both teams,

  17. Tracey

    February 26, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    Oops… stepped away to get dinner started and the Phils fell behind! Eep!

  18. Tracey

    February 26, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Looking at the list of pitchers in the game … 10 pitchers between the two teams. Everybody pitches, woo hoo?

  19. Tracey

    February 26, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    WOO HOO!!!! Phils take the lead!

    Hey, Zagurski looks sharp!

    • Tracey

      February 26, 2011 at 4:06 pm

      Yeah, I liked what I saw of him last year, and he’s keeping up the good work!

  21. Tracey

    Gotta love spring training. Today, they’re playing against the Yanks in Tampa. Tomorrow, they’re playing the Yanks in Clearwater.

    Good old Dane Sardhina. Might have been a seeing eye hit, but a really great AB.

    Like Orr quite a bit.

    Worley was consistently around 94mph, needs to locate his junk better, but not bad at all.

    They seriously need to give Valdez a raise. great job beating the throw.

    Ben Fran will do just fine this year, looks slimmed down a little, and faster.

    Help me!
    I am at work and am NOT getting gameday for some damn reason.
    How did the Phils regain the lead???

    • Tracey

      February 26, 2011 at 4:23 pm

      7th inning, with bases loaded and 2 out, Sardina got a 2-run hit.

  24. Brooks

    February 26, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Pat, putting up the Yankees logo is akin to putting up a rival gangs colors –

    No no no!

  25. Tracey

    February 26, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    Ruh roh….

  26. Tracey

    February 26, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    WOO HOO!!! Phils start the season on the right foot!

  27. Brooks

    February 26, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Tracey – please let me know what happened?

  28. Lefty

    February 26, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Thaaaaaaaa- Yankees lose.

  29. Tracey

    February 26, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    11,000 tickets sold, a record crowd… but it looked kinda empty.

  30. Lefty

    February 26, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Schlitter not a good performance, maybe better next time- signed away from the Yankees.

    Nice Job Zagurski

    Jury out on Grilli
