-Ruben Amaro says Roy Halladay is doing some shoulder exercises, but is not throwing. Still on a 6-8 week timetable.
–Chase Utley did not play in extended spring today, but will likely DH tomorrow and Thursday as well. No word yet on when he’ll play the field.
–Ryan Howard will join Chase in extended spring tomorrow, as will Jim Thome. Howard will hit but wont run. Thome could return before the end of the homestand, but Amaro doesn’t think he can play the field right now. He just has too much discomfort when at 1st base.
–Laynce Nix will head to Clearwater on Thursday.
Really, can Cliff Lee get a win? I’m predicting he’ll get one tonight. But I’m not even so sure about it. This Phillies team NEEDS to hit with runners in scoring position. That’s really it.
Lineup: Rollins SS, Pierre LF, Pence RF, Ruiz C, Victorino CF, Wigginton 1B, Polanco 3B, Galvis 2B, Worley P
It’s a pretty beer. Pours a deep straw, with a white head. It’s Hoppy, with a fruity aroma, and you’ll taste mango, spruce, yeast, grapefruit, and a little lime peel. It does have a high bitterness to it, but it’s not going to overpower you. On ratebeer.com, it’s ranks high – like 99 out of 100. Give it a try. -Pat Gallen
