Placido Polanco's Gold Glove award came as somewhat of a surprise. It's not because he isn't thought of as a great defender. Instead, it's because his injury-marred season was the top 'Polly' story this season.
With one year left on his contract, it will be interesting to see how the Phillies handle their third base slot in 2012.
The Flyers trip to Buffalo might be an interesting early season test.
The Sabres have one of the better defenses in the NHL, while the Flyers are one of the League's top scoring franchises.
The orange and black need to settle into a smoother flow of play if they hope to win consistently. Facing a team that plays good defense might force them to do that tonight.
