Waiting for opportunity, Orr stays prepared
PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies have a 25-man roster, but more than a week into the 2012 season only 24 players have seen the field.

Utility infielder Pete Orr is still looking for some action.

He tried to keep himself sharp before Saturday's game against the Mets at Citizens Bank Park, where he stood at home plate during Joe Blanton's bullpen session in the right-center field bullpen. Orr has continued to hit in the cage and do everything else possible to try to stay sharp, so he has a chance to succeed when he gets an opportunity.

"You try not to do too much, because then you start to change stuff," Orr said. "Just keep a positive attitude and think of the big picture. There's no room to be negative."

Asked if he would have asked Roy Halladay to pitch to him during his bullpen session, Orr chuckled because Blanton is more laid back than Halladay.

"I asked Joe," Orr said, laughing. "I'll just leave it at that."
