Bringin' High Hopes Without The Smoke

Grapefruit Opener

Grapefruit is the most disgusting of all fruits, but if you were starving in the desert, you would eat the shit out of it. That’s kinda what today is like for Phillies fans. Sure, not everyone is starting, (but hey Utley and Howard are!) and Cole Hamels will likely throw about 15 pitches before calling it a day. That said, it’s a lot more baseball than we’ve enjoyed for a couple months.

So let the sun warm you a little bit more today, and don’t let the wind chill you as much as it did yesterday. Today is the start of the Phillies Grapefruit League Season. They take on the Houston Astros at 1:05.

Here’s the Phillies starting 9:

1.) Ben Revere – CF
2.) Michael Young – 3B
3.) Chase Utley – 2B
4.) Ryan Howard – 1B
5.) Darin Ruf – LF
6.) Domonic Brown – RF
7.) Laynce Nix — DH
8.) Yuniesky Betancourt – SS
9.) Erik Kratz – C

Spring is just around the corner. Go Phillies!
