SPRING TRAINING: Adams shows some stuff in bullpen

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Mike Adams threw a bullpen session in front of pitching coach Rich Dubee Thursday morning. After the final fastball powdered the mitt, Dubee wanted to make sure the guy signed to serve as the Phillies' set-up reliever knew it was Valentine's Day – and not because he was hoping for a Vermont Teddy Bear.

"(Dubee) kind of asked me at the end if that was the same intensity I've been going with the whole time," Adams said. "I didn't realize I was exerting that much."

Charlie Manuel, who usually defers to Dubee when it comes to talking about pitchers, asked the media members in the room if they saw Adams throw, then raised his eyebrows and said, "He was throwing pretty good."
