I was in Clearwater the last week with my family.

My in-laws know Dave Montgomery and some of the other Phillies front office people. I met Dave Montgomery. He is a very nice guy, but I didn't want to bother him with some hack trying to pick his brain about baseball. The Phillies people are very excited about this year.

I saw the Reds play the Phillies in Clearwater. Volquez looked good. Dunn was lazy and basically got two errors (called hits by the generous scorekeeper) that made Cordero's numbers worse than they should be.

My daughter (8 years old) decided she wanted to keep score. But she wanted to make up her own symbols, so a "W" was a walk, and an "O" was a generic out. But the best was when someone struck out, my wife asked her what the "S" she put down was for, thinking she would say "strikeout". However, she said the "S" stood for "sucker"! I think I laughed for about 10 minutes.
