    A group of fantasy baseball players get together each year from around the country to meet in a city for a weekend of eating, catching up and going to a baseball game. This year, the group will be in Philadelphia on the weekend of June 27-29.

    This group is one of the first online communities ever formed. If you are interested in covering their reunion at the Phillies-Braves game that weekend, please let me know and I can give you more details.

    Hey Alec, no problem. Yeah the too/to thing was surprising, since you clearly know how to write. Unfortunately, I don't control the shortened versions of headlines, so I'd recommend letting your editors know, and I'll try to let people know.

    No problem, Alec. Hopefully your Philly teams can pick it up soon for the sake of my co-workers (I moved here last year, so my allegiances are still elsewhere haha).

    Hey Alec!

    I haven't followed them terribly closely, but for Chase Utley, patellar tendonitis and chondromalacia is the kind of thing that is going to flare up every once and awhile and possibly make a DL stint needed, but it shouldn't really limit him when it is under control—which should be most of the time.

    For Ryan Howard, that Achilles will never be the same, and he probably won't have quite the same leg drive that he used to, especially since it's his left leg, his driving leg as a left-handed hitter. That said, the difference is probably going to be insignificant.

    The same goes for Roy Halladay. Honestly, the strained muscle probably won't ever be the same, but the change will hardly be noticeable on the field, especially now that he has had ample time to rest it.

    We'll see!

    Wow, I can't believe I forgot about Mike Adams and Mr. Young! haha I was blowing that up on Twitter, too.

    Oh man, I would love for them to get Upton or Stanton. I'm not sure if that's likely, though. I am very uncomfortable with the outfield going forward. I think that's a huge issue.

    I really hope last year was just a slip in this era of Phillies baseball, bro.
