It’s way too early to really have any idea of what this year will hold, but today makes the start of Phillies Spring Training 2013, and single-game tickets for this season’s games are on sale right about now.
There are still many questions about this year’s team: Will Chase Utley and Ryan Howard return to former form? Will the new additions pan out? Will Eric Kratz be a suitable early season fill-in for Chooch? Does anyone other than us love Eric Kratz this much? Will Cole Hamels compete for the Cy Young? Will Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee bounce back? Will Delmon Young get paid for staying relatively in-shape? Right now, no one can know. We’ll lay out our predictions and impressions much closer to the season’s beginning, but with this bright new season ahead of us, anything can happen. Even this.
