The Phillies have opened up the Grapefruit League schedule with back-to-back losses to the New York Yankees. They close out the “three-game set” to open up Spring Training today at Bright House Field.

Today, big Joe Blanton gets the ball, and we’ll get at least a look at how his elbow has progressed this offseason. So far, no complaints as he says he’s healthy and ready to go. Placido Polanco also gets his first start of the preseason.

Here is your Phillies starting lineup for today as they face off against the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the Grapefruit League schedule. Maybe one day they won’t play the Yankees?

Phillies Lineup:
-Rollins SS
-Polanco 3B
-Victorino CF
-Thome DH
-Pence RF
-Wigginton 1B
-Brown LF
-Schneider C
-Frandsen 2B

Phillies Pitchers:

    Anyone know if these spring games are on the radio, or if there’s a radio schedule around someplace?

        Meh. I’m just getting Rush Limbaugh (lol) on 1210.

        Oh well, I’ll find it somewhere.

        Or maybe not and instead actually get some work done. lol
