The World Champs are back on the field

In case you haven't been paying attention amongst all the Eagles rumors, the World Champion Phillies are down in Florida getting ready to defend their title. They take the field for their first Spring Training game today against the Pirates at 1:05.

Here is the lineup the Phils will be using:

  1. Jimmy Rollins SS
  2. Shane Victorino CF
  3. Raul Ibanez LF
  4. Ryan Howard 1B
  5. Geoff Jenkins RF
  6. Matt Stairs DH
  7. Jason Donald 2B
  8. Eric Bruntlett 3B
  9. Chris Coste C
Notice how lefty-heavy that lineup is? The Phils should murder right handed pitching this year.

Pitching for the Phillies will be Jamie Moyer and Joe Blanton. While most won't be watching this game, it is still going to be exciting to have some baseball to follow. I can't wait to see if the World Champs can do it again.
