Our friend Craig Calcaterra from Hardball Talk (Braves fan alert) digs into a Phillies fan friend of his, who posted this on his Facebook profile: 37 days until Aces and catchers report!
I like it. Craig doesn't:
Last I checked their hitters were made to look silly by the Giants and now they’re down one of the best of that bunch and plan on replacing him with a guy who got cut from his Winter Ball team.
Your thoughts? Are we getting a little too smug? Does anyone care? I have Spring Training tickets and am currently using rose petals in the shape of Cliff Lee's ironic chin to count down to Valentine's Day- the first day of workouts for Phillies Aces and catchers.
