When the Game is Dull

The anemic Phils lost yet another Spring Training game this afternoon.  All signs point to the concerns of fans and pundits being true.  Phils are old, look sluggish on offense, and have poor pitching depth.  Jamie Moyer was tempted to take a bullpen or two.  To the extent that an emboldened Braves fan violated one of the laws of Spring Training and turned around to talk smack in foreign territory.  Even the Mick thought him to be uncouth.  So what to do when the grandkids are at the game and the home team is dull to adults as well?  To the play area!  Then walk around and head back to the seats just in time for Carson to catch a ball tossed from our catcher-in-waiting, Cameron Rupp.

    great photos ! wonderful to see you with the beautiful grandkids ! I love the guy, but Matt Stairs sounds like he has marbles in his mouth. Who thought he had the right stuff to be a color commentator ?

  2. Thanks, Dan. It’s a special treat to be able to enjoy them in this environment. You’re right about Stairs. Perhaps he’s a major stockholder in Comcast and this was a benny he cashed out. Sounds like depth will be a problem on and off the field this year.
