Not much happening in Phillies land today. Grapefruit League play kicks off tomorrow at 1:05 against the Yankees. MLB Network will have the game as Cole Hamels gets the start. He'll probably work a few innings as they look to remain undefeated and unscored-upon (but most importantly unscathed) this season.
Don't forget to "like" The Good Phight on Facebook for a chance to win a copy of the essential (and beautiful) 2011 Maple Street Press Phillies Annual. Hey, and while you're at it, go follow the TGP blog lords on twitter: @TheGoodPhight, @Wet_Luzinski, @PhillyFriar, and @FuquaManuel.
Now, onto the links.
