News: It’s opening day!


A few things before we get you set for 4 p.m.:

GRAPEFRUIT FINALE: The Phillies finished the Grapefruit League with a 14-17 record with a couple ties. The Yankees (24-9) won the league, with the Cardinals and Pirates just behind them. Atlanta (9-22) brought up the rear with the worst record in spring training.

HERRERA IN THE THREE HOLE: David Murphy looks at how Odubel Herrera can thrive as the team’s No. 3 hitter. Pete Mackanin’s lineup has been set for quite a while, and today should be Hernandez/Kendrick/Herrera/Franco/Saunders/Joseph/Rupp/Galvis/Hellickson.

OPENING DAY STARTER: Speaking of Hellickson, he’s elated to be opening day starter for the second-consecutive year. He’ll face the Reds’ Scott Feldman.

FOLLOW ALONG: The game is at 4:10 p.m. We’ll be live tweeting and posting fun stuff during the game.

Also, the Phillies Nation Podcast drops this morning. Opening day talk! Party! Celebrate!
