Homeward Bound

The Phillies are home! The Phillies are home! Starting Friday night, the Phillies will begin their annual two day On-deck Series that wraps up pre-season play and rings in a new year of baseball in Philadelphia.

The Phils will host Pittsburgh for two games, Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Cole Hamels will start on Friday evening for the Phils, while "Jay" Happ is slated to pitch on Saturday.

As expected, Kyle Kendrick will start in Joe Blanton's spot in the rotation as the Phillies open the 2010 season. Drew Carpenter has been called up to take Kendrick's spot in the bullpen.

A second round pick in the 2006 amateur draft, Carpenter appeared in 3 games with the Phillies last season, pitching 5 1/3 innings, walking 4, striking out 5, but he surrendered 7 earned runs. Carpenter also appeared in 1 game for the Phils in 2008, when he threw a scoreless inning.

Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

Ryan Madson is acting questionable

I've seen similar types of "poking fun" entries on other Phillies blogs. When this picture came across my desk today, I figured, "Why not...?" Ryan Madson was out on the town (Manayunk) over the weekend and was photographed acting pretty with a purse slung over his shoulder and being chummy with a friend of mine. Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!
