Well the first sign of spring has come, and not much excitement in Philadelphia. There isn’t much news since pitchers and catchers aren’t due to report till tomorrow. I’ll have pretty frequent updates about spring training once things get rolling. I’m pretty ambivalent about Manuel and most of the Phils, except Ed Wade, he gets an F minus.
"The biggest thing will be [Kenny] Lofton and Utley in our lineup," Manuel said. "But I also could see Polanco in the opening-day lineup, too. It’s way too early for me to commit… . Polanco could be in there playing somewhere opening day. It’s not like we’ve ruled that out. With Polanco around, that makes us stronger. We need to find a way to get him at-bats. "Utley is definitely going to play more than he did last year."
