Jason Adams Quoted in Philadelphia Daily News

Threshers Assistant GM Jason Adams was quoted in a story today in the Philadelphia Daily News about the buzz at Phillies Spring Training.

"We were a little nervous [in that] the schedule was not as strong opponent-wise as it has been the last few years," he said, noting the Red Sox, for one, don't come to town. "But we've not seen the issues we thought we would."

Typically, Adams said, there are eight to 10 sellouts per spring. "But we've still not had a game where we turned anybody away," he said, refering to the berm seating beyond the outfield fence. "We've had enough room to sell standing room where everyone has been able to get in the ballpark."

"It makes it kind of like a socializing area where people can watch four minor-league games going on in the complex and then turn around and watch the big club as well," he said. "It's a pretty cool spot if you're a baseball junkie."
