MLB: Spring Training-Detroit Tigers at Philadelphia Phillies Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

We are about a week out and it’s probably pretty close to being able to call what the initial 28-man roster is going to look like. Remember, teams can carry two extra players in the month of April and it’s a virtual guarantee that both extra players for the Phillies will be pitchers (thank you, NL DH).

There are hiccups with regards to health, of course, but at least we know now that the team should have its full stable of starters ready to go once the bell rings on Opening Day. They may not all be ready to go 6+ innings, but at least they will be there. After all, wouldn’t you rather see Zack Wheeler for three or four innings than some random minor leaguer?

On to the links.
