Going to be blustery today, winds blowing from the NW, I don't know how that effects the park.

Just got in from my 5 miler.    It's cold and windy.    I was wondering the same thing about the Bank's location.    Lookin' at google, looks like left field is in the NW part of the Park.

Pretty sure Velasquez mowed us down a couple times last year, this could be ugly if we're sticking with the "swing for the fences" approach.

Charlie and Dave were surmising yesterday that right field could see a lot of action today.

He started once against the Nats last season, a 4-3 Nats loss (26th April, home: http://www.espn.com/mlb/recap/_/id/360426120)

To paraphrase Slate, "Bryce will make it an adventure in right."    :)    If the wind is out of the NW, it'll be pushin' balls all over right field.

Velasquez has great stuff, but is inconsistent. A lot like Edwin Jackson. Any given night he can wow you or get abused.

I'm thinking about starting an over/under on how many times FP kvetches about the weather (wind) in the first inning.    So far:

IIIIIII

That's enough   ...  1/2 inning.

Last year was his first full year in MLB.  He started strong but slowed down which is not unusual for a youngin.  I believe he was shut down early also with arm problems.  He does have the best "stuff" of any phillies starter.
