Mayberry has 'awesome' opening day for Phillies
As most of the grit in Juan Pierre's game is in the outfield, Mayberry's defense was the real key yesterday.

Galvis makes (dubious) history in debut
Proposition bet: his DP/AB ratio will be (higher/lower) than Wilson Valdez's.

The last Phillies to make their debuts as starters on opening day were Larry Bowa and Denny Doyle in 1970.

Would have thought there'd have been more.

For one-stop minor-league shopping. OK, Tyler Cloyd and the Piggie Bullpen. And way to slug it, Sebastian Valle and Leandro Castro. Um... uh oh, Jose Contreras. And Dom Brown still sucks.
