07:56 AM ET 02.27 | Domonic Brown, the spotlight is yours. He has been blessed with great talent and cursed with great expectations, set back by injuries and set aside by a franchise in constant win-now mode. "I think I've been through a lot," Brown said Tuesday afternoon. About 90 minutes earlier, he had hit a baseball about as hard as a man can hit a baseball. ... It was the kind of monster shot that fires everyone up, from the bleachers to the benches. In spring training, it's the kind of home run that raises hopes and expectations for a young player. ... There is nothing the Phillies would like better -- or would help this team more -- than for Brown to seize this opportunity. He knows it, too.

I know he's still young - but it seems like every year is 'gonna be the year' with Dom Brown...

Working in South Jersey, I get to hear all the Philly Fans (on ESPN Philly) cry about... well... just about everything :-)

This is it for this guy. He breaks out this year or he's a career back up.

If everything goes well, the Phillies may finish 3rd in the NL East.

Either he breaks out or breaks something else, I think this guy is related to Carl Crawford.........

Looks like that conclave has got you all baked, they STILL have three of the best pitchers in baseball, third is a LOCK, I'm thinking more 2nd..........

Actually... I laugh quite a bit... Tony Bruno rocks...

So... about your screen name... I guess "Prayin' Utleys gonna make it thru half the season" wouldn't fit?
