Default Re: Phillies NL EAST CHAMPS offseason thread!

Looking at the quite pathetic list of FA; does anyone have any hope of the Phils doing anything note worthy this offseason? Are there any trades that are even a remote possibility? We could probably take on someones bad contract, but the only thing we'd really want is pitching and there is no such thing as an overpaid pitcher.

JIMMY ROLLINS: 2007 NL MVP. BACK TO BACK BABY

woo its good having 3 perrenial mvp candidates in your infield. Now all we need is some sort of pennant or at least another playoff appearence (or maybe even a playoff win omg!) and i'll be happy (sort of).

I agree w/ you bremen, no FA's out there. The only worthy thing the phils can do now is sign rowand to some kind of deal. He's worth it. I really don't care how much they give him, I think he needs to be a part of the phillies in the next few years. I think the rotation will be fine this year with myers back and maybe Carrasco getting called up by september (savory too maybe?). Who knows.

Did anybody see that the Phillies made a 4 year offer to Lowell who turned it down? That would have been nice. Someone told me it was on the AM jump on espn.com

It doesn't give much details, but does say the Phillies offered more (although probably less per year). I can't really blame him, as his skills decline the BOSOX fans will be kinder to their hero. Also better chance for more rings in Boston [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

The Phillies have apparently acquired OF Chris Snelling from TB for cash. Seems to be a very injury prone Aussie who thinks Yoda is responsible for his baseball abilities!!??? I like this guy already [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

EDIT: source DNL, and did anyone else here Ken Rosenthall mention VORP, oh yeah baby!

Ugh, I turned it on just in time to hear them all agree that moneyball and advanced statistics are overrated and imply that Bill James' numbers are biased since he works for the Sox and Youkillis had the highest range factor among first basemen, after which I promptly changed the channel.

Damn, I thought they were done talking baseball and turned it off. Hearing them diss James would have been lol worthy.

Ok this is driving me nuts. I swear it was in a Phillies thread but I can't find it. Someone mentioned a site that was just a collection of links to various articles. Sortable by sport/team. Stupid me forgot to bookmark it and forgot the name of the site, anyone have any ideas?
