caught looking

a blog about the philadelphia phillies. not to be confused, exactly, with "caught looking" the debut album by independent/unsigned/unheard of singer/songwriter greg roth, who is, coincidently, yours truly.

A Breathless Ninth

Phils come from behind today to best the Tigers split squad (no Polanco) 3-2. Ryan Howard launches his 7th HR of Spring Training. We don't have a count on Ks, but believe he has Ked less than 7 times. Not tremendously meaningful, but encouraging perhaps. Ricardo Rodriguez got the start in place of the announced Jon Lieber, who opted to do a bullpen session to work on his changeup. Ric Rod worked into the 4th and gave up a 2-run dinger, for a line of 4 IP, 5H 2 ER 0BB 1 K. Yoel Hernandez worked a scoreless 8th for the win, despite yielding 3 hits and a walk. However, today's big news:

SAVE - AQUILINO LOPEZ (2)

There's no breathing for the opposition when the Aqualung makes an appearance. 1-2-3 in the 9th for the save.

Tomorrow: Cole Hamels, the greatest pitching prospect in the history of Major League Baseball (that's TGPitHoMLB in case you're Tom G), will face batter off the mound with a baseball in his hand for the first time since July. Hamels said recently that he feels "awesome."

Cue the Jethro. Two innings of work for Aqualung tonight, three hits, 0 runs, 3 SO. Good results, but more interesting is the amount of work he got.

they're trying to make a decision between lopez and booker, probably. if the aqualung doesn't make the big club, does he get optioned to AAA or released? no idea on his service status.
