BDD: Phillies 2010 Preview

At Baseball Daily Digest, I preview the 2010 Philadelphia Phillies.

Will a revamped bench and bullpen help the Phillies become the first National League team to reach the World Series in three consecutive years since the 1942-44 St. Louis Cardinals? That’s what is on the minds of Phillies fans going into 2010.

The preview went onto 8 pages in Microsoft Word and totals over 3,400 words. What I’m most proud of, though, is that I worked in the word “milquetoast” correctly. “Milquetoast” is such a great word.

If you missed it, my Phillies preview at The Hardball Times can be found here.

Once you’re done traversing the Phillies previews, you can check out my latest Fantasy Beats: Hot Spots installment at Baseball Prospectus.

    Makes me hungry for milk and toast…

    With regards to Ruiz:

    He really has seemed to “get it” the past few years at the plate. He almost always takes the first pitch; works the count and is very selective. To have a #8 hitter in the National League that isn’t afraid to talk a walk can be a nice luxury to have.

    I’m cautiously optimistic that he can produce a .360 OB% this season.
