Philadelphia Phillies

Signed OF Doug Glanville to a 1-year contract.

Apparently, the Phillies were worried that their outfield situation of Burrell, Byrd, and Abreu with Ledee and Michaels backing them up was way too solid and dependable.  Enter Doug Glanville to be the smartest guy and the worst player on the team and the situation’s rectified.  Jason Michaels is the likely victim of this puzzling signing, which will not help the Phils one bit.

Sorta went on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on there.

...serious gamble by Philly seeing he is post surg. I always liked the guy, but I like 9 million dollars better.

Also, Joe Mays is expected to be out for all of 2004 (TJ surgery), during which time he'll collect $5.75MM.

In connection with the upcoming BP Chicago pizza feed tomorrow, I've been assigned as the nominal GM of the Twins. As I was reviewing the team last night, here's what I envisioned:

1. Santana -- arbitration eligible, I guesstimate somewhere around $3MM

While on the subject, does anyone want to guess the sweepstakes value for the following guys

Eddie Guardado ($2.7MM now)

does this give Brad Thomas a chance?
   206. True Blue n/k/a "DeJesusFreak" Posted: December 05, 2003 at 06:01 PM (#569175)
Conceivably, but I would think that Matt Guerrier or even Boof Bonser or J.D. Durbin may be better options. I'm figuring all will be in AAA yet again, though I may put Guerrier in the bullpen (like what they did with Santana and Balfour).

So the Twins hope -- I've read that there is a dispute whether the insurance will be voided because of Mays's preexisting 2002-03 injuries.

This is my pick as the Phillies' worst off-season acquisition. Fortunately, the mistake will be limited because it's a one-year deal.

Enjoy him y'all...

Braves 2004 NL East champs, here we come!

Thanks Eddie Wade!

Hey, Roberta can still give you that 90 MPH heater. All that velocity allows for some mighty impressive home runs, because they come in as straight as an arrow.

It's a trap!

You would've thought the Pirates might get one starting-caliber shortstop out of two above-average upper minors prospects, wouldn't you? I liked Collier a bit more than Nunez, but that's really not saying much.

Geez, another reason for Cubs fans to be happy with this postseason. Dusty's insistence in running this guy out there as the first bat off the bench for much of August and September (let alone the half-dozen or so games he started in the thick of the pennant race) is about the best evidence yet of the weakness of the Cub bench. It was as bad (if not worse) than the legendary Giants 2002 bench which may well have cost them the WS.

Ugh, just when you think that Ed Wade had learned what constituted stupid moves...
   215. mommy Posted: January 12, 2004 at 05:50 PM (#571489)
Do you really project glanville to get 436 AB? or is that just done to show what he would do over a somewhat full season, were he given that opportunity at this point?
   216. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: January 12, 2004 at 06:15 PM (#571491)
ZiPS is a reflection of what a guy would do with semi-regular PT.

Geez. You only have to look as far as the Phillie-killing Jeff Conine to find some better outfield replacements that can be had pretty cheaply. In his previouis stint Glanville was also way too expensive (this also Wade's fault), so it will be interesting to see how much he makes should he make the cut. Perhaps he's just getting paid in free food at PR events. Who knows. Another theory is that Michaels or Ledee were in with the nattering nabobs of negativity that somehow correlate to being the guys who get front row seats for Bowa's dugout antics.

This paves the way for the rumored Burrell-to-the-Orioles trade.

Do you have a link for the source of this rumor? I haven't heard that one...
   219. Dr. Vaux Posted: January 13, 2004 at 05:36 AM (#571502)
Oy... the at-bats Bowa will give him over Byrd/Burrell might be enough to give Atlanta the division *again*.
