Today is Truck Day, which is pretty much what you think it is: The day when a baseball team packs up all the gear it's going to need for spring training and starts driving it down in a truck (or two). The Phillies' truck is being packed up — by the Phanatic, of course — and is scheduled to drive around Center City at noon. It hops on 95 South at 12:30.

There is light at the end of this wintry tunnel. Pitchers and catchers report on February 12.
