Pitchers and Catchers report to Spring Training soon

Thumbnail image for Halladay-Phillies.jpgThe 2009 baseball season is now in the rear veiw mirror, as the 2010 baseball season is getting closer. The 2010 season for pitchers and catchers begin February 16th. One of those pitchers will be Roy Halladay whom the phillies traded for during the off season. The major questions for the phillies pitching are the bullpen and the 5th spot in the starting rotation. Phillies aquired some bullpen additions like Jose Contreras and Danny Baez. Phillies did lose Scott Eyre and Chan Ho Park. Now for the 5th spot in the 2010 Phillies starting rotation. Canidates Jaime Moyer, Kyle Kendrick, and Andrew Carpenter. In a recent interview with Fox 29 New Ruben Amaro Jr. said that it would be Moyer’s spot to lose. Jamie Moyer is 47 years old and just had two surgeries in the off season. I personally think Moyer will not keep his job. Kyle Kendrick to me is the favorite unless Andrew Carpenter has an unbelievable spring training. As for catchers, Phillies acquired Brian Schnieder in FA. Schnieder will be a nice backup to Ruiz and is a verteran that knows how to call games.

Side Notes: This has nothing to do with phillies or baseball but Congratulations to the 2009-2010 NFL Champion New Orleans Saints. It is a great story and a great season for the Saints.

Thank You for reading

    Good blog 🙂 And I do agree that Kendrick is due to have a great year and will be the fifth starter. I think Moyer will occasionally come into that spot but only later in the season. He has to realize he’s not 25 anymore…or 35 anymore….or 45 anymore.
