    The Official Spring Training Thread 2012

    Let's move on from the offseason and discuss position battles and talk scouting reports. Who gets the suprise nod from lower ranks or non roster invitee?

    Harry, I grew up with the phillies and learned the game by your voice. You will always be missed but never forgotten. Though you are no longer with us, you'll never be "outta here" in our hearts!

    I could go somewhere with that, but I'll restrain myself.

    Won't lie, I'm a bit baseballed out after last season's disappointment. Been basically following the Phils every day religiously even in the off-season since 2006. Winning 100+ games and then just getting bounced in the first is so depressing as well. It's like "what the hell was the point of winning 100 games?" Throw that on top of the Philly media saying all the changes we need to make to be a contender is mind-numbingly infuriating. Needed an off-season break. Won't lie, I'm still not in baseball mode right now. My fantasy draft will probably get me amped and then some ST games and I'll be ready to go.

    So on daily news live today they said Kyle Kendrick had better control last year because of Roy Halladay... They said he has shadowed Halladay again this year and is known as roy halladay Jr and Halladay is helping him with his control and what not. They went on to talk about him in full and I am trying to find it for you guys.


    Boom this means Roy Halladay will make KK into a number 3 starter

    He has shadowed him so he might be grabbing onto some of that work ethic though... Clearly he will never have as much talent but maybe halladay can teach him picture perfect control...This 7 mill could be a steal if Blanton proves to not be healthy. Kyle Kendrick last year seemed like a different kind of guy did he not? I think that is because of Halladay

    Personally, I think KK wears down when in the rotation too long. He was last year because he threw less innings, and wasn't in the rotation for real long stretches. That's my opinion on KK.

    I do not disagree.

    I thought about the Kendrick signing more since I first saw it. I was angry at first but I'm ok with it now. Blanton will hopefully be gone at some point this season or at worst definitely after this year. At some point Kendrick will be a starter in this rotation even if it is as our 5th starter. $3 million isn't that bad. At least not when considering we gave Baez close to that each of the past 2 seasons, Moyer like 8 a yr in both 2009 and 2010, Adam Eaton close to 10 mil for one season that he didn't even pitch, Freddy Garcia over 10 mil in a season he didn't pitch either, and paid part of Thome's salary for years after getting rid of him, and the list goes on. I will try to save my frustration for bigger issues than Kendrick getting a low end deal.
