Great story. Then again, Baez touched 95, 96 last year. We shall
see. But I'm rooting for this guy. Grilli, too.

Everyone's favorite Brave, Jason Heyward went 0-3 today. I like to pick out the worst NLE lines of the day to take my mind off Dom's.

Cliff, Dom Brown will be fine. He may start the year in LV. So what? He'll still be fine. He should just relax have fun. Eventually the talent shines through.

MG: Thanks for the info in the last thread. So the Phillies were basically league average in terms of the number of times they got completely shut down. So they weren't quite as ghastly as I thought, but they weren't very good either.

In the last thread, RSB & Willard Preacher were saying the Phillies need more youth and athleticism on the roster,

Where are CJ Henry and Greg Golson when you need them?

Anderson throwing fire?! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG

Does Mattzilla throw a hard slider to enhance the fire?

"So they weren't quite as ghastly as I thought, but they weren't very good either."


bap, so I guess scoring the second most runs in the NL isn't very good?

Never mind, I forgot. In bap world, where he drives the bap mobile, and types on the bap computer in the dark of the bap cave...well, the atmosphere can depress.

You need to get out in the sunshine Metropolis of Phillie Nation more, where scoring the second most runs in the league actually is very good.

Matt Anderson as potentially the most unlikely value find ever at the 'Value Village?'

In other news, Mike Stanton of the Florida Marlins suffered an age-related injury:


http://aol.sportingnews.com/mlb/story/2011-02-27/marlins-stanton-strains-quadriceps


The 21 year-old outfielder strained his quadriceps running out a ground ball on Sunday. "Damn", Stanton was quoted as saying, "if only I wasn't so young and had a few more years experience I would have known enough not to exert myself so hard this early in Spring Training. I guess I got hurt because I was too young to know any better."

Stanton had collapsed running down the baseline, and subsequently limped off the field. There is no timetable for his return.

This injury comes one season after another Marlins outfielder, chris Coghlan, also suffered an age related injury, when he tore his meniscus foolishly celebrating after a game. Older, wiser palyers have been known to avoid similar injuries.

MG, maybe so. Does the bullpen look like this when they break camp?:

Lidge
Madson
Contreras
Romero
Bastardo
KK
Anderson

clout, you forgot Taylor and Hewitt.

awh: We're having a disconnect here. It is possible to score the 2nd most runs in the league & still have an inordinate number of games in which the team's offense is shut down completely. If that happens, I would submit that all is not well with the offense.

BAP - inordinate amount? You just said yourself it was league-average. 7th worst out of 16. That is not an 'inordinate amount.'

2nd in runs. 5th in hits, 5th in HRs, 5th in OPS, 5th in batting average, 4th in stolen bases, 4th in total bases. 'League average' (7th out of 16) in games with 4+ runs.

Basically above average, and in the top third, of every statistical offensive category. And all of this despite having an absolutely ghastly 25 game stretch in May-June in which they scored 3 or less runs 19 times.

awh is right- you really are in 'BAP World' when it comes to last year's offense.

AWH...I need Vance Worley in the pen, he's earned it. But honestly, as long as Baez and Herndon get left in FLA picking oranges for the rest of their career, I don't mind anybody getting a shot in the pen

If Matt Anderson becomes an effective reliever for the Phils this season I'll be shocked and impressed.

awh: RE: Dom Brown

I was only having some fun. BLers ride the emotional rollercoaster during Spring Training. I was really just playing around with the idea that maybe Braves fans are doing the same.

I'm hesitant to start rooting for Anderson, as it may detract from my Mathieson love.
