Spring 2010 by the numbers so far

     Spring Training 2010 down in Florida has been about the same as our winter this year, miserable. MLB writer Todd Zolecki just tweeted about it today, he said it’s been the worst weather for Spring Training that he’s ever seen. He confirmed this with the locals who also agree that this has been a tough first three weeks of Spring Training.

     So far, with the first three weeks of the Spring Training schedule about gone, the Phillies have stayed near the top of the standings even while tweaking the lineups and with pitchers adjusting the way they go about throwing their pitches.

                              Here is some of the story as told by the Spring Training numbers and stats that have been accumulated up to now. Not that it always tells the whole story, but numbers are fun to look at and compare. Stats through Sunday night 3/21/2010:
