Odds And Ends

Odds And Ends: Tickets, Photo, Durbin, Park, Glanville

I suppose this year I’ll try my hand the old-fashioned way — through picking up deals when friends can’t attend games. Par for the course when you’re world champions.

Let that be the final reminder of 2008 for the boys on the field. Now time to focus on a repeat.

To me, Durbin was the single most important piece of the 2008 Phillies. He needs to see less time on the mound, or else the bullpen will be badly exposed and beaten.

I hope Park gives it a good run. But if he doesn’t win the spot, I hope Park realizes his role quickly and doesn’t dwell over what could’ve been. Park will be crucial to the ‘pen’s success.

  • Great little piece by Doug Glanville about how difficult it is for players to handle the media, immediate fan reaction and instant opinion.

I’ve raved about Glanville’s writing before, and I continue today. Anytime his name is in the New York Times, it’s a worthy read.
