Surprise, Surprise

How many of us greeted the Pedro Feliz acquisition with enthusiasm? I thought so.

Raise your hands if you were comfortable on March 31st with the Phillies bullpen? Higher, please.

Step forward if you believed Shane Victorino could handle the every-day responsibilities of centerfield and the number two hole in the batting order. Right!

Sign here _______________ if you believed Brad Lidge would convert his first fourteen save opportunities. Need a pen?

Pat yourselves on the back if you had Jamie Moyer leading the staff in wins by early June and Kyle Kendrick tied with Cole Hamels for second. Uh huh.

Let's get a voice vote on whether or not the Phillies should even consider re-signing Pat Burrell. Quiet please.

OK, have there been any developments that did surprise you?

I'm surprised that the Victorino/Werth/Jenkins platoon has been working so well. It will be interesting to see how it plays out when all three of them are healthy again.
