Reuben Stops Denying & Snaps To Reality

24 03 2011

Shhheeeiiit.  Well we were all thinking it.  We didn’t want to admit it, but facing reality, we all knew Chase had not even taken the field yet and chances of him not starting the year on the DL were doubtful.  The Phillies haven’t been secretive about the whole situation, but they certainly haven’t been a fountain of knowledge either.   At least now we know we’ll be seeing Wilson Valdez starting the year at second base.

Charlie said that Polanco will play in tomorrow’s game and most likely get two at bats.  Meaning the opening day roster should like this…Rollins, Victorino, Polanco, Howard, Francisco, Ibanez, Chooch, Valdez & Roy Halladay.  One week away, finally.  Let’s just hope Utley’s knee is ready to go by the all-star break, that’s how long I think he could be out until.  It’s getting dangerous down there in Clearwater.  Oswalt is taking liners off the dome, Victorino is colliding with Ibanez, these guys just need to get back to Philly.

For the record Oswalt is a beast.  Dude took a line drive off the ear, from one of the all time greatest hitters in Manny Ramirez.  Roy didn’t even want to leave the game….

That’s how they breed em down south.  Tough as shit.
