Reds 10, Phillies 3 – 2/27

The Phillies dropped to 0-3 in Grapefruit League action, but Charlie Manuel isn’t concerned.

He finally is seeing a little life from his offense. Shane Victorino went 2 for 3. Raul Ibanez went 1 for 2 with one RBI. Greg Dobbs went 1 for 2 with one RBI. Matt Stairs went 0 for 3, but he crushed a ball to right field that died on the warning track because of the wind. And J.C. Romero and Ryan Madson allowed a combined one unearned run in three innings in relief. Dave Borkowski threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings.

“We’re starting to swing better,” Manuel said. “We hit some balls hard today. That’s going to come. I’m not worried about our hitting. That’s definitely going to come. We’re playing a lot of guys that we’re trying to take a look at.”


Manuel said Jayson Werth, who hasn’t played in the first three games, will play tomorrow against the Tampa Bay Rays at Bright House Field.


Pat Burrell will be in the house tomorrow.

“Strike him out,” Manuel said.

How will you do that, Charlie?

“We’ll go right at him,” he said.


Figured they would get crushed today, in mourning over Eaton getting cut. How did Pablo and Ozzzie do?

I cant believe they cut Eaton , what a mistake!!! He is the reason they won last year LOL

Which one of our pitchers caused the most damage?

The Phillies have given up a lot of runs in the three games, but none of the guys who matter were the culprits. Just a bunch of guys who never realistically had a chance to make the team.

Gee wish I would’ve ordered that Eaton jersey. Could’ve been a collectors item. LOL!

Seems like the regular line-up hasn’t done too bad in the hitting department. Like the fact that Ibanez has been hitting well. Will be odd see Pat the Bat in a Rays uniform 2morrow.
