Stella takes in easy on Philadelphia, Opening Day only 19 days away


Jeremy Hellickson has been rumored to be the Opening Day starter for the Phils, is he the ace of the staff though?



The weather is fine in Clearwater though it will be a high temp of a somewhat chilly 55 degrees down there today, Spring Training is chugging into it's final two weeks or so now with the calendar reaching March 15th.

Back at home in the tri-state area of Philadelphia, we had a brush with a blizzard, Winter Storm Stella was the name, and luckily, the immediate area of Philadelphia and NJ and Delaware seemed to have dodged a late winter mega-storm. Center City officially tallied 6.0"

The suburbs and Reading got covered with an icy base though, and I guess it's just mother nature saying that you did have a little taste of Spring a few weeks ago, but it's still Winter.

Here's the stats on the snow totals around PA: (courtesy NWS) note that these totals though are not considered official.
