Stretching, jogging, long-tossing begins for Phillies
Pitchers and catchers kick into Clearwater today as they embark of six weeks of prancing about the warm weather. Meanwhile, fans back home haven’t seen their lawns since last Saturday, and if they attempted to prance about, would probably slip and fall. Many players arrived early, and why the hell not? Calisthenics, cocktail waitresses and the warm climate sure beats Philadelphia, where sunlight off the folding chairs glistens, and to Hurricane Schwartz we listen, only to hear a Septa bus spinning tires in the snow.
