A Closed Window?
I came across this Ken Rosenthal article vis CSNphilly.com. Rosenthal talks to some scouts about the Phillies this spring. Here are three separate scout assessments:
“They’re painful to watch” and
Their window didn’t close slowly — it shut”
Somehow I don’t think the Phillies marketing department will be choosing any of those slogans this year. Of course, it is just spring training, and if Jimmy Rollins doesn’t care, why should we? However, I tend to agree with the scots. When ESPN picked the Phillies for 66 wins, I thought that was too low, but after this spring, I am starting to wonder if he might be right. I’ll be making my prediction soon, though.
