The assignment was to determine how and why Hunter Pence was so quickly and completely accepted here. Translated into the local vernacular, I was tasked with figuring out what makes him a "Philly guy." As anyone who's from the area knows, there's no set criteria for that kind of thing.

And the Phillies sent me an email just to let me know! I'm sure many of you got this ad as well?

"The Blue Jays are interested in upgrading their starting rotation before Opening Day. Toronto general manager Alex Anthopoulos made a very public scouting appearance at Joe Blanton’s start for the Philadelphia Phillies over the weekend...." Depending on how much of Blanton's salary the Phillies are willing to take on, he might be the preferable choice for the Blue Jays if they aren't looking to trade away decent prospects.

Via Grant Brisbee So, this is madness. A healthy Blanton is positively a bargain at 1 year, $8.5 million. There was an arguable case to be made that the Phillies should have been willing to eat some of his salary two months ago, when Blanton hadn't yet pitched to live batters. But the more he pitches and the healthier he looks, the higher his trade value should be. There is no way that the Phillies should even think about trading a healthy-looking Blanton for no prospects while eating part of his salary for the privilege. I don't care how tight their luxury tax situation is.

He’ll be here. He’s not going anywhere. He was drafted by this organization, raised by this organization and became a superstar in this organization. If you know anything about this organization, that means he’s not going anywhere. It’s fun to talk about for talk radio and stuff like that. But he’s not going anywhere. That's my opinion.

During early-morning batting practice on a back field at the Carpenter Complex, Domonic Brown launched a deep fly. It was headed toward a players parking lot, and everyone knew it. The loud thud was heard from home plate. So was the car alarm. Brown had struck Jose Contreras' big truck with a home-run ball. "You park your truck over there," Manuel said, "you have a pretty good chance of getting hit."
