  • Manny Navarro from the Miami Herald writes about Juan Pierre, and how the Phillies were the only team to offer him a contract. He signed a minor league deal with the Phils in January.
  • Phil Sheridan of the Philadelphia Inquirer says that Phillies ace pitcher Roy Halladay is not a fan of the MLB extended playoffs that will come into effect this season. It says that he does not like the wild card or lower seed team hosting the first two games of a DS series.
