tongue   For Clarke

The Phil's have decided to keep scrap heap pick up Jerome Williams. Not a bad signing actually.  He's cheap and our pitching staff is a little thin in the starter department.  His career numbers aren't great but he did pretty well for us last season which he thanks chooch for.  

I hope this means they'll let Kendrick go to free agency.  It's just time to move on from his roller coaster.

So we are keeping Grady Sizemore for another year . He did better than dom brown. I'm guessing he's either the 4th outfielder or insurance if they trade someone.

I just saw that and gasped out loud. By all accounts he seemed to love it there.

He has to have some kind of offer on the table somewhere.

He was close to the gm, who I think the Rays fired so he chose to leave as well, I think he will go to the Cubs

he needs a place where he can ride his bike to work, I wouldn't ride a bike in chicago unless it was armor plated and had a mini gun attached to it

Aj Burnett declined his option so we are free from his $12 mil salary next year.  Good riddance to him and his walks.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/report--marlins-offering-giancarlo-stanton-record--300m-contract-232712805.html

not sure if this will end up happening but if it does....wow, JUST wow.
first off, it's the marlins, and he would be stranded there for his entire productive career
second it's the marlins and he would be stranded there for his entire career

I can see them wanting to keep him, but....it's the marlins and he would be stranded there for his entire productive career

In other news, the new Cuban slugger Tomas, is allegedly flying in to the US today to meet with his agent - signing could be imminent.

I would say bahhston, but there is no way NOWAY, they are gonna sign anyone to a 12 year contract for 300 million

i'll be happy if they sign a couple of decent pitchers to 4-5 year deals and take our chances with a few other parts here and there

I'm not sure anyone is worth that kind of money - and he has an injury history.

He wants both a no-trade and an opt-out clause.

If somebody wants that kind of money winning a championship is not their priority

I don't get the opt-out either - I mean we're already at the $30 MILLION/SEASON mark - how much more can there possibly be?

Stanton is great but you don't win with one guy - a hard lesson that I hope we've learned.

Looks like that Stanton deal is actually going to happen 

Shall we start betting on when they trade him?

he'll stay there a couple of years, then opt out of his contract and then someone else will sign him for another 300 million.

Or he'll get hurt and the Marlins will be on the hook for a part time pinch hitter - if that.

I don't think he's played a full season yet.


I'm hearing we're pushing a Hamels trade to Boston. I'm nervous as the Phils aren't known for getting the most bang for their buck with trades.
