Kyle Kendrick and Brad Lidge are expected to pitch when the Phillies open their television schedule Saturday at 1:05 p.m. on CSN and MLB Network.
The Phillies are the new kings of all media it seems. The Phillies will be on television seven times during spring training, with games carried on CSN, MyPhl 17 and the MLB Network. MyPhl 17 replaced CW Philly as a broadcast partner and will air 43 games this season. Including radio and live streaming feed on MLB.com, each of the spring training games will be covered. Tomorrow's opener in Bradenton will air locally on 1210 AM radio. Harry Kalas is expected back in the booth Wednesday, March 15. For a full schedule, click here. ... In other media related news, the Phillies' bullpen will be the subject of a new six-episode reality series on MLB Network. In the first episode, the bullpen must create a dessert using organic ingredients. Wait, I'm confusing my reality shows.
