Consider that our triple-D headline, if you will.
– The Phillies beat the Blue Jays today in Dunedin, 6-3. Doc, who threw two scoreless innings (yawn) spoke with reporters after the game and gave to us this little tid bit via Jayson Stark:
This bulletin from Roy Halladay to hitters everywhere: There are "a couple of (new) things I want to work on this spring." Scary
The Cy Young award, perfect game, and playoff no-hitter wasn't enough.
He also voiced his disdain for Dunedin via David Hale:
Doc on pitching in Dunedin: "I got sent down four times in that office, the last time was to A-ball. So I’ll be glad to get out of here.”
Hale also provided some video of additional Doc comments- after the jump.
– Despite lowering his hands this spring (which were finding their way north again today) Dom Brown went 0-for-4 today (0-for-9 in the spring). By my count, that makes him 2-for-38 between winter ball and spring training. So much for that offseason progression. Yay Ben Francisco!
– Dr. David Rubenstein told the WIP Morning Show today that Utley's injury is likely not severe and shouldn't affect his hitting, since the tendinitis is in his "lead leg" not his trailing leg, which does most of the pushing. I'll buy that. But given the fact that Davey Lopes alluded to Utley having a knee problem last year, I'm not convinced it's just going to go away. Tendinitis has the habit of recurring over and over again. Phil? Phil Connors?
