It was like waiting for an Easter egg hunt on this sunny Easter day, the Phillies had a 3 PM deadline to submit their roster, and it seemed like they really needed the extra time this year because it came right down to the wire before the team announced it.
Anyway, the mystery is over and here are some thoughts about the lineup. It’s a roster that hardly reminds one that the Phillies are rebuilding. Despite the press saying that the Phils wanted to trade the whole team away.
Jeff Francoeur, aka Frenchy, made the team as well as Andres Blanco.
The Phils have to go with a 4-man rotation to start off the season, as Andrew Simon says here in a article about the opening day roster.
