R.I.P.- Jim Fregosi

Major League Baseball lost one of its good guys today, as Jim Fregosi died at the age of 71 after suffering multiple strokes last night.  Phillies fans remember him as the man at the helm of the '93 World Series team.  He was also one helluva shortstop back in the day with the Angels, Rangers, Mets, and Pirates.  A career .265/.736 hitter with 151 HR over 18 seasons and a 6 time All Star.  He also managed the Angels, White Sox, and Blue Jays with a career 1028-1094 record (1991-1996 with the Phillies, 431-463 record).  He's a baseball lifer, having spent time as an advisor and scout with various organizations throughout the years.  Rest in peace Jim.

Phillies 2014 Opening Day Bullpen

Papelbon
Adams
Bastardo
Diekman
Martin
Munson
Lincoln

AAA Rotation - MAGs, Pettibone 6th and 7th Starters

AAA Bullpen - Aumont, DeFratus, Garcia, Horst, Savery, Rosenburg

Something just to start some good conversation, not sure which of the players I listed are "On the Bubble" having to clear waivers. I will go check.

Best case first guess, who knows who will be healthy.

Happy Spring Training everyone - especially GM-Carson, Bob D, and FuriousBall.

This Munson kid better be lights out in spring if he's to earn a spot in the bullpen. Adams might start season on DL. Would still like to see Madson added on an incentive laden deal. He could be the lynchpin to a great bullpen if he can regain form.

Happy Spring Training SirAlden, Carson Corey and gang!

Bullpen there are lots of options and it could fall any direction. Stutes and others are in the mix. I would think Papelbon is the only gaurantee with every one else needing to prove something. Control, health, effectiveness, etc... they all have something to show before being named to team.

Good news, Ryan Howard will play 162 games this year and hit 58 homers. I'm hoping what he means by that is 148 regular season games with 50 regular season homers and 14 playoff games with 8 homers.

They wouldn't put anything thats not true on the internet.

Pettibone sore shoulder like the end of last year AAA for sure.

Savery DFA to AAA so far the prediction is holding up.

Anyone else have a different prediction?
