  • The savior has arrived!

    The Phils have made yet another blockbuster move that will surely wrap up the NL East. After witnessing yesterday's bullpen debacle, astute GM Bill Giles, umm, I mean Pat Gillick, has signed the one and the only Rudy Seanez. Seanez, a 14 year veteran of 8 teams who was foolishly released by the Dodgers this spring, is expected to fill the gapping void left by Jose Mesa last season. Happy days are here again!

    You know a guy is terrific when so many teams get rid of--I mean--want him.

      Young pitchers won't come to hitter friendly CBP because they're afraid it would hurt their carreers. So, they're pretty much bound to getting pitchers whose carreers are basically over.

        Gillick likes to dumpster dive. I would hate to sit next to him on an airplane.

          Steve Kline was designated for assignment by San Fran on Sunday. Kline, known to a couple of Phillies fans as the pitcher who screamed at Rollins while Rollins slowly trotted the bases after a HR in 2001, would certainly fit in well in the disaster zone known as the Phillies bullpen. Stand Pat is probably, at this very moment, working on a deal to send Hamels to the Giants for the 75 year old Kline.

            Why trade for him? Just wait until no one picks him up and sign him for the minimum.

              Gillick's sources tell him that Kline is in great demand. Therefore, Pat will have to swing a deal and part with either Hamels or several top prospects.

                  Excellent point. That is something every other team would do EXCEPT for the Phils. The Phil's management team have no brains and believe they would have to trade players or prospects for someone who was essentially released. I wouldn't put it past this management to do something as idiotic as that.

                      "As idiotic"? Why not "more"?

                        On the plus side, if there's ever a bench-clearing brawl, UFC Rudy Seañez will be a major asset.

                        And it's only a matter of time before he goes back to his "hometown" Padres.

                          I don't see the Phillies giving him up or giving up on him. He now has Gillick's stamp of approval, and that makes him one of baseball's most valuable commodities. Would Gillick give up anything that valuable? Never.

                            Why? Because he would sign you to pitch in the seventh inning?

                              Rumor has it that Pat found himself during one such dive.
