Aaron Cook looks to continue his strong Spring (3.21 ERA) and make his case for a spot on the Phillies roster as he and the Phils lock up with the Orioles in a rematch of the 1983 World Series.

But the big story today is not Cook’s quest to make the Phillies – instead it is that of Roy Halladay, who labored through 4 innings in a Minor League game, throwing 81 pitches and giving up 2 ER, while topping out at 90 MPH on the radar gun and settling in between 86-89 MPH. Keep it here for any updates on Halladay and the latest roster news.


1. Revere – CF

2. Rollins – SS

3. Utley – 2B

4. Howard – 1B

5. Young – 3B

6. Brown – RF

7. Mayberry  – LF

8. Lerud – C

9. Cook – P

Go Phillies!

    Utley and Howard go back to back, discrediting several hundred myths in the top of the first. Okay, windblown off Bruce Chen, but Ford Frick provided us with more asterisks than a lifetime should see.

    This maybe as high as the 3rd time Charlie has batted Revere-Jimmy 1-2. I don’t have the slightest if he would actually do this, but it’s amazing to me that he did Chase 2, RyHo once, and only once even though there seem to be multiple reasons that might be a good idea. I’m not complaining, I’m just really amazed he did that only once. Makes me wonder why even tried it that one time.

    Mr. WFC appears to be past defining a good spring as seeing a lot of pitches. He’s seeing pitches today, and kaboom times 2 with a couple opposite field rips today.

    Da Man.

    Boy, that’s fun to see.

    Could RyHo send ’em scrambling to the record books to see how often 3 and 4 have homered twice in one game? For sure, it’s an awful lot of at least one by both. 7-0, The good guys, and even Aaron Cook can’t blow this one, unless Gene Muach takes over on the bench.

    Aumont goes an inning plus, fairly wild today, but at least he was keeping the ball down. Liuke so many young guys, consistency is a challenge for him at times. But he can look brilliant, too which puts him above a lot of guys. He’s kind of a Jake with better command. Good stuff.

    Swing and a fly ball to pretty deep right, Galvis, yes Galvis goes back, makes the catch, runner on third starts to the plate, and the infielder turned right fielder uncorks a 1 hop toss just up the line toward 3rd, sending the runner back to 3rd.

    Not bad at all.

    One hop from fairly deep right.

    Time to go to the record books and solve the mystery of what team has the record for most days in a row of parting ways with a player who homered that day.First Ruf, whio was priobably glad to go when he considreed if he stayed, and played wekk, he might have to be interviewed by Greg Murphy again, who asked him after his shot yesterday “how imoportant is it for a young player to play well when he’s trying to make a club?” (okay, it’s not a direct quote, but it hinestly was something close), and now Yuni Nettancourt, whio orobably makes the Wall of Fame after this spring jacks a 3 run shot deep into the left field sky. What a spring for Yuni. And he should be outtahere not too long after the game.
