Phillies - Signed Ibanez for Some Reason
Philadelphia Phillies - Signed LF Raul Ibanez to a 3-year, $30 million contract.
So, they give up the draft pick that they could have gotten for Burrell, give up one of their own for Ibanez in order to not risk having a better, younger, player signed for a less risky amount of time but make a couple million more?
The change in league and park will really benefit Ibanez and mask his decline, but a non-star’s 37-39 seasons isn’t exactly something you should be downgrading your team for because the downside is significant. Not a lot of players make Pat Burrell look like Darin Erstad in the outfielder, but the Phillies found one. Say what you will about Phans, but they’ll certainly give Ibanez an earful if this idea goes poorly, which the odds say will.
