First Full Squad Workout Today

As as I write this, Charlie Manuel is giving his speech to the 2011 Phillies.

He usually wings it, but players always seem to enjoy it.

Today is first full squad workout.

One thing from yesterday, which I neglected:

Asked how the pieces will fit in right field, Manuel said, “We’ve got some young guys that have a chance to make an impact. … Domonic Brown, definitely, he’s kind of the first choice there, but (Ben) Francisco and (John) Mayberry, I definitely want to play them a lot and see them and see where they fit on the team.”

Manuel later tried to clairfy.

“That job is up for grabs,” he said.

He said he simply plans on giving Brown plenty of at-bats this spring, but clearly the Phillies need another right-handed bat in the lineup. That’s why Francisco and Mayberry are in the mix.
