Phillies Off-Season Report on 6-ABC

Last night, 6-ABC Philadelphia aired a special report on the Phillies Off-Season.  The report covered the weddings of Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino, Jamie Moyer’s charity work, Chad Durbin’s business venture, the Phillies Cruise and Charlie Manuel’s weight loss.  The Phillies Cruise coverage is about 3 minutes into the program and you can see five of my photos featured in that portion of the report with my name listed underneath:

And here are still shots of the photos as they aired in the report:

Earlier this week, there were a few very “minor” signings that occurred.  The Phillies picked up veteran outfielder Freddy Guzman on a Minor League contract.  He will not be invited to Spring Training.  And veteran right-hander Oscar Villarreal was also given Minor League contract on Thursday.  Villareal is coming off Tommy John surgery and missed the entire 2009 season.  He was with the Astros in 2008, the Braves from 2006-2007 and the D-Backs three years prior to that.  With many question marks still in the bullpen, another in inexpensive, yet experienced arm hanging around is a good idea.

And if you have not seen it already, check out my report on the new Fantasy Baseball tools from Bloomberg Sports.  The tools are available for pre-order now at mlb.com and will be ready to use on 2/18/10.

So the countdown to Spring Training continues…only 6 days until the truck rolls out and 13 days until pitchers and catchers report!

Jenn, I think we need to convince the Phillies to add “two phanatical female bloggers” to their list of spring training items, don’t you? ;-)

Always great for the local press to give the little people some great credit and press.
So many local news organizations fight each other so much they forget that some of us down in the trenches also get great photos and are willing to share them with the respectful news gang.
I second Sue that they should maybe pop both of you in a rolling trunk with air holes and zip you both down to the Phillies Complex off Drew Street ASAP!
Already there is the sound of popping gloves heard out there. The parking lot is already starting to fill and the fans leaned against the fences to see who might be out there ready for the season.
Awesome pictures!
