Today marks only one more week to the start of the 2011 season for the Phillies. All of the offseason hoopla with the signing of Cliff Lee, it seems like a long time ago since that has occured. Now it's getting close to the time to get down to business.
I am not so sure that everyone who was as ecstatic as they were back in December is all that ecstatic now with the health status of Chase Utley and doubt of who will be in right field and how they will contribute to the team.
The Spring Training season has had it's ups and downs for this team. Injury has snuck up on the Phils like a really bad dream. It's part of a baseball season, but it's not what we expected when the spring training.
What the future holds for the Phillies past Opening Day is anyone's guess. They really haven't dominated teams in this Spring Training, and with the exception of Roy Halladay and Cole Hamels, there really hasn't been a standout on the team in the spring.
