That’s heartwarming, but what if it was the blueprints for a really good bullpen?

Given the choice of saving Victorino or the blueprints for revolutionary emissions-free technology from certain death, Utley would choose Victorino. I’d say chances are better than 50/50 that the described scenario never even develops. The same article says that the Phillies signed Kendrick, Dobbs, Brad Harman and TJ Bohn to split contracts. This says that the remaining unsigned players on the 40-man roster are Hamels, J.D Durbin, Mathieson, Rosario, Blackley and Victorino.

Charlie Manuel says he thinks Werth has 30-home-run potential in this article. Werth has 33 career home runs in 976 at-bats and was a fantastic hitter for the Phils in ’07 despite hitting just eight home runs. The Phils are going to have to figure out a way to get him at-bats this season — playing right field against lefties isn’t enough. I hope they let him see a lot of time in center as well, but that seems unlikely.

Brad Lidge limped off the mound today after catching a spike while delivering a pitch. Lidge says he’s day-to-day.

Joe Savery will start Tuesday night’s game against Florida State.


Guess who’s coming to Spring Training?

The Phillies have invited 19 non-roster players to Spring Training, including Joe Savery, Josh Outman, Carlos Carrasco, Lou Marson, Greg Golson and Val Pascucci.

Barring an injury, I don’t think any of the position players among the non-roster invitees have much of a chance. The pitching is a different story and it seems possible that Outman or his fellow non-roster invitees, including Vic Darensbourg, Gary Knotts and Brian Mazone, would have an opportunity to pitch themselves into the mix.

The article linked above also says that the Phils have agreed on a 2008 contract with Pete LaForest.

The IronPigs will play their first game in their new stadium against the Phillies on March 30.

Some of the early reviews on Ed Wade’s job in Houston are kind of brutal.

Matt Wise signed with the Mets.

Ryan Howard and Jared are apparently a good combination for Subway.

This article suggests that Dallas McPhearson and the Giants are not close to a deal.

Philliesflow will be seldom-if-ever updated until the first week of January.
