The Phillies clubhouse wants you to know they're hungry. In two separate interviews, two notable Phillies uttered the word that I suspect is going to be the theme of Spring Training in this year. Hunger. Roy Halladay says he's getting more hungry every day.
"The longer you play the more hungry you get," Halladay said. "All of us are to the point where we’ve had success and established ourselves. Once you do that, the most important thing becomes winning. I know Oswalt and Cliff feel the same way. We’re at that point in our careers where you really have to start chasing it. To be able to be on this team, right now, I think we all have to like our chances and hope we can do what we need to do to get it done."
Shane Victorino though, probably had the best hunger quote, even though he has an odd idea of where hunger resides.
"There’s some hunger in our mouths," centerfielder Shane Victorino said. "I don’t think we can be any hungrier than we are right now."
These Phillies are starving! Not in their stomachs or minds... but in their mouths! Feed them!
