Brett Gardner Grand Slam. My goodness, he still has it.— The Short Porch (@short_porch) March 7, 2021
I promise that I will not tweet during Phillies games this year for fear of jinxing the entire game. You’re welcome in advance.
On to the links.
- If you want to believe the Phillies, they claim that the play of Odubel Herrera will be the determining factor in where he starts the season.
- Jose Alvarado is generating lot of excitement on the team this spring.
- This is a good profile on Caleb Cotham, who might be the most important addition to the team this year.
- Roman Quinn hasn’t been very good so far this spring which hurts his chances in the center field race.
- You’d think that the baseball players would have learned their lesson last year about the Covid protocols, but apparently not.
- Trevor Bauer sure is an interesting fellow isn’t he? Over the weekend, he decided the pitch a game with one eye closed.
- Ian Desmond discussed why he decided to opt-out of the season yet again.
- It’s never too early to talk about the draft, so here are some scouting reports on two of the top pitching prospects that will be available.
