As some of you may know, I have become extremely addicted to Twitter. It’s such an excellent tool for breaking news and sports debating. So today I decided to ask five random Phillies fans a question on Twitter. There will be no character-limit as I said they could use multiple tweets. This will be something I will try to do each week from now until the end of the season.
Here are this week’s questions:
What are you most excited for this Phillies season?
@chelsealynn818: Roy Halladay finally pitching for us and possibly getting back to the World Series.
Who do you think will be the Phillies MVP this season? Please include stats.
@meechone of The Fightins: I’m biased, but… Ryan Howard – .285/62/192/131 – he will break the single-season HR, RBI & SB records
Who should be the Phillies 5th starter and why?
@PhilaSports of Liberty Bell Sports: I think it all depends on if everyone is healthy enough for the start of the season, whoever performs better in spring training… between Moyer and Kendrick.
Who needs a bigger bounce-back year: Lidge, Hamels, Rollins, or other and why?
@f*ckthemets: If I was going to go obvious-style, I’d say Lidge. The rest of the bullpen proved it can’t take over, and…I don’t trust Baez closing again, either. But other than Lidge, I’d have to say Greg Dobbs (!). He’s our most important infield…bench player, and when he’s hot, he completely changes an opponent’s relief strategy.
Which NL team scares you the most in challenging the Phils for the pennant?
@iAims: The Cardinals, only because of their batting.
Random hits of the day:
@Macho_Row on Doc’s first perfect game: Won’t have to wait long. Opening Day against the Nationals is just around the corner.
@ryanlawrence21 (of Delco Times) on Doc’s beard: I consider Doc’s more “7 o’clock shadow” (slightly more prominent than 5 o’clock) than full-fledged beard.
