We'll start off with the bad news, the Phil's bullpen dropped one in Florida today to the freakin' Devil Rays, but it is still spring traing so who cares. The games still don't count for a couple weeks.
The Good news is a bit more plentiful, Aaron Rowand who'd been hitting a dismal .150 thus far in the spring had a couple good strokes today and Pat the Bat broke a one for nineteen drought with a two run bomb that made the stands despite a powerful wind blowing in.
The best of the good news was made by Brett Myers, who already looked in mid-season form going six plus. Myers only gave up two hits and was charged with one unearned run after a fielding error. Myers had all his stuff working, he mowed down seven Devil Rays over the six innings.
Uncle Charlie, who, for the time being is still calling the shots, says he'll be making his decision soon as to who will be on the mound for the opener on April second against Atlanta. I got a piece of advice for ya Charlie, give the ball to Brett. He's slim, trim and focused, today was still a spring training game and he's already painting the corners like Picasso. Let's not get the season off on the wrong foot, let's show the Braves, and the rest of the NL east who's going to be boss this year.
