lol... congrats to the Phillies, but booing the GM's congratulations of the Rays is typical Philadelphia.
hey let those damn cheer leaders from fox (buck and McCarver) compliment tampa bay. The phillies have jerked us around for 28 years that night was about us damn it!!! Oh and like the wedding reception classic says...."oh what a night"

By the way, did the boooing for Bud Selig come through loud and proud? That was awesome. They said his name and the crowd just unloaded on him...well deserved mind you. After that screw up Monday where he gave the Rays a run through his typical poor planning and leadership....it was proud momment.BTW i saw virtually no behavior problems at the Bank last night. there thousands of people prading up and down broad street...love was in the air. along with BEER!!!!!!What a great ****IN night!!!!

Only in Philadelphia would they ever feel the need to boo anything on a night they won a championship. Although, since it only happens about every 100 pro-sport seasons for Philly, I guess they gotta get it in when they can.

Bought out Tom Gordon and So Taguchi a couple days ago. Good call on both I think.I'm curious how much Burrell is gonna cost to bring back, or if we'd prefer to spend the money elsewhere.

You'd think that they would sign some outfielder if not Burrell. Out of the 5 bigger name free agent outfielders, being Abreu, Burrell, Dunn, Ibanez and Ramirez, the two that make the most sense are Burrell or Manny because they are the only 2 that bat right handed. I think it would be pretty important for whoever they sing to be right handed just because with Stairs and Jenkins, 2 lefties, on the bench it creates better situations for giving the regular left fielder time off and for example if the Phillies signed Manny, they could set their lineup in a couple ways, with Victorino, Werth, Utley, Manny, Howard or Victorino, Utley, Manny, Howard, Werth were it would split up Utley and Howard in the lineup so that Howard and Utley would be better protected against left handed relievers and create more balance in the middle of the lineup.If they fail to sign either Burrell or Manny there are a few decent backup options who I think should be right handed too.Casey Blake - a pretty good hitter and would add versatility in case Feliz goes to complete shit or if he just got hurt.Rocco Baldelli - sign him to a incentive based contract. Hes a good hitter who would probably need need time off but it wouldn't be a problem since he would be sat for Stairs against tough righties. Plus Baldelli wouldn't need a defence replacement so there wouldn't be a need for a player like Taguchi on the roster.Juan Rivera - After a bad season he could be had for cheap. With him I would go with a straight up platoon with Stairs though.Jason Michaels - Hes done the job in Philly before and would be really cheap. Would be a decent fit as a 5th outfielder for the Phillies if all else fails that could be used as a defensive replacement and play against some left handed pitching.

http://philadelphia..../...sp&c_id=phiDerosa to the Phils in a three-way trade that would send Peavy to the Cubs? I'd take it. This might be the first off-season move that's been proposed involving the Phils that I've liked the sound of.

Raul Ibanez signed for 3 years at 30 million. Ugh, what a weird move for this team to make.

Signed Chan Ho Park to a guarenteed 2.5 mill, and Moyer to a 2-year deal worth a minimum of 13 mill, max of 20.WTF is Amaro doing? Does he just have no interest in trying to repeat?

So Burrell gets signed for two years and 16 million by the Rays and the Phils are stuck with Ibanez for 31.5 million and three years.JC Romero suspended for 50 games.Awesome. So awesome.

Finally did some smart things today. Signed Dobbs to two years for 2.5 million and Hamels to a 3-year deal for guarenteed 20.5 million with incentives. Hamels' deal will take him to the end of his arbitration period, and if he stays on task will probably end up saving us a fair amount that he would make in arbitration during his last two years of eligibility. Hopefully he just stays healthy.Now I'm just cringing to wait and see how much we have to pay Howard in arbitration.

Phils offer 14 million, Howard asks for 18. This is getting ridiculous. If the Phils drop out of it early this year, I'm really hoping we shop Howard around.

Yeah Howard might not even be worth the 14. If there were any comparable replacements I would look to deal him right away.

I agree, but I know there's no way we deal him immediately after winning the championship. That's why now I'm currently hoping that we at least start to shop him the first "excuse" we get, such as dropping out of the race early this year.

On the positive side a 2 year/10 million deal for Werth's last year of arbitration and his first year of free agency is an absolute steal.
