The Bank opened its gates to another season, er, preseason, last night as the Phils had a two-night stretch at home to warm up the mound for Monday’s opener featuring new acquisition Roy Halladay. With Hamels on the mound Friday, Werth popped in a solo shot (did you catch a glimpse of that mane? He’s really let himself go) that put the Phils on the track for the eventual 4-3 victory.
Monday’s much-hyped debut of Halladay should be one to watch, as the Phils have a lot riding on that pitching ace.
2010 Season Predictions: The season will rely on the performance of the depth of the pitching rotation, with Hamels needing to step things up to keep the Phils a strong threat from the mound. Moyer, who locked up the last spot in the rotation, will be moved to the bullpen before mid-season.
