    I guess the days are gone when all or most ST games are televised as they were with CSN. Screw NBC Sports! No games on TV since Feb. 25.

    Saturday, March 7 vs. Red Sox at 1 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia

    Monday, March 9 vs. Yankees at 1 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia+

    Tuesday, March 10 vs. Twins at 1 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia+

    Tuesday, March 17 vs. Blue Jays at 1 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia+

    Wednesday, March 18 vs. Reds at 1 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia+

    Thursday, March 19 vs. Yankees at 1 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia+

    Saturday, March 21 vs. Rays at 1 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia

    Phillies putting on a power display! Bombs by Hoskins, Harper, The Mighty Quinn and some guy named Listi.

    Also, I'm sure I've said this before but what were the Phillies thinking drafting a high school kid with the number one pick? I know Mickey is a cool name and all but there are a bunch of college guys drafted later that year that have all started contributing at the major league level. Nick Senzel, Matt Thais, Will Smith, Pete Alonso........

    Here you go. Took a shorter drive to Lakeland to see the Phils play Tigers today. Weather is amazing....our lineup is meh. But Turnbill vs Arrietta on the bump.

    Nick Martini is a name I’ve never heard that looked like a beast against trial Tiger pitching, absolutely jacked a shot. Some catcher named Guitierrez hit a grand salami too.

    Spring baseball.....so I know this isn’t going to be a thing they work on....but Haseley gets a shift immediately every at bat. Get that kid a good bunt skill down the third base line.

    Nice win today. Kingery 0-3 and strikes out every at bat. He seems lost. He may have been over rated.

    How about Didi's 0-19, .000/.174. Looks like a bad dive for $14 million. Down with his BA, up with his money. But really, how can you pay a guy big money after he goes .238/.276 last year? Yeah, it's only ST though.

    Today’s lineup consisted of mostly hopeless cases giving it a last shot. Good it wasn’t televised.

    We'll have to wait and see. I'm curbing my enthusiasm and taking Retro's "show me" attitude from last year. Hopefully, Joe will get'em going.

    No more games after today. Spring training will be suspended. The start to the season will be delayed. I will probably suffer with drawing . It is what it is.

    Revisiting Ruf, 33, after three years in Korea where he averaged .300/.400.

    In 14 ST games, 28 ABs for SF, the Rufer is hitting .429/.469 with 3 HRs. Hope old leadfoot carries it over into the season, if it ever gets going.

    Ruf was mis-handled by the Phils. They destroyed him and screwed with his head. I am a fan and wish him well.

    The season delay will cause him to lose his swing, again. It might even be delayed more than 2 weeks.
