Chilly in Clearwater, Halladay Throws BP
It’s pretty chilly in Clearwater today, as Jimmy Rollins‘ headwear suggests. But it’s still better than Philly.
Today we got a chance to watch Roy Halladay throw against Chase Utley, Raul Ibanez, Domonic Brown and others. Players typically just take pitches the first day. They’re just tracking balls. But Brown felt ready enough to take a couple hacks. The ball didn’t get very far.
Congratulations to Wilmington News Journal‘s Scott Lauber, who just got a job covering the Red Sox for the Boston Herald. Did you know Scott wrote a book with Gary Matthews? Why, yes. Yes, he did.
