Coupla quick baseball notes on this day filled with hockey news, and views:

Second, the IronPigs tweeted a “save the date” for Thursday, January 21, 2016: The 2016 “Phillies Winter Banquet.” More news and guests to be announced later.
Finally, the biggest news of the day came through from the Phillies themselves. They released their official Spring Training Schedule. It looks something like this: (notice anything peculiar?)

See you at the park,
