Spring Training is almost over…

With yesterday’s announcement of Jamie Moyer as the Phils’ fifth starter, it seems the time is complete, until both Brad Lidge and J.C. Romero comes off of the disable list later in April.

Right now, this will most likely be the Phillies team that will be facing the Nationals next week in D.C.

Starting Line-up:

1. Jimmy Rollins – SS

2. Placido Polanco – 3B

3. Chase Utley – 2B

4. Ryan Howard – 1B

5. Jayson Werth – RF

6. Raul Ibanez – LF

7. Shane Victorino – CF

8. Carlos Ruiz – C


Brian Schneider – C

Juan Castro, INF

Greg Dobbs – INF

Ben Francisco – OF

Ross Gload – OF


Starters –

1. Roy Halladay

2. Cole Hamels

3. Joe Blanton

4. J.A. Happ

5. Jamie Moyer

Relief Corp –

Kyle Kendrick

Chad Durbin

David Herndon

Jose Contreras

Antonio Bastardo (left handed specialist until Romero gets back)

Danny Baez

Ryan Madson (closer until Lidge gets back)

J.C. Romero (On disable list, left handed specialist)

Brad Lidge (On disable list until either the second or third series of the season, closer)

Things are definitely going to become real interesting in the bullpen this year, even with the return of Romero and Lidge. But, if the starters all do their jobs, and the offense keeps scoring, as it has done in the past, that’ll become a big non-issue real quick.

I can’t wait to see what this team does during the next several months.
