The Phillies Got Muscle
Pedro Martinez threw a bullpen today. No word on whether he will join the Phillies rotation next week. … Shane Victorino has some soreness in his quad, and was not in the lineup. It is not believed to be serious. … Gotten a few e-mails about why the Phillies no longer have the 2008 World Series patches on their uniforms. I have been told the Phillies planned to phase out the patches and other 2008 World Series signage, etc., around this time. The 2008 World Series banners outside the ballpark will be fading away soon, for example. Can’t say I blame them. It seems to be bad karma to be wearing 2008 World Series patches in October, no?
