In anticipation of Spring Training which will be upon us shortly, I have put together some ideas for a few of the Phillies to get ready to play again. For Brad Lidge and his bum knee and elbow, I suggest some remote control bionic body parts:
No more surgeries for Brad and now, with the fancy remote, he will have full control over his fastball spots.
Next, you may be aware that both Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino got married this off-season. Now that the two of them have decided to cart along the old ball and chain, maybe they can help each other out with the extra weight so they will not be slowed down on the base paths:
So onto more serious issues…Ryan Howard needs to work on cutting back his strike outs. Maybe we can get him some super awesome magnifying glasses that make the baseball look more like a bowling ball?
And then there is the case of Cole Hamels whose confidence has been battered after a disappointing 2009 season. We all know the kid can do the job; we have seen him do it and go home with a 2008 World Series MVP trophy to prove it. So what really needs restoring here is Cole’s faith in himself.

Spring Training starts in 10 days!!
