It’s around Seven minutes long. Topics covered include the transactions for the week (JRoll and Snelling to the DL, and the replacements), and what the Phils can do to replace the MVP and Victorino.

Update: Stupid WordPress won’t let me post it here. You’re going to have to go to philliestk.podbean.com to see/hear it (not too difficult), or search for it in the iTunes library. I submitted it today, so it should be available for download in a few days.

As reported by Phillies.com:

Former MVP Ryan Howard has been traded today by the club to the  Texas Rangers for RHPs Brennan Garr (expected to start for AA Reading), Thomas Diamond (also expected to start for AA Reading), and Omar Poveda (expected to start for High A Clearwater), LHP Zach Phillips (expected to start at Low A Lakewood), and SS Joaquin Arias (expected to take Howard’s place on the major league roster).  Reportedly, the club has considered Howard to be “overpaid for his value to [the team],” and wants his “cancerous” attitude out of the clubhouse.  When asked who would start at first base in his place, Manager Charlie Manuel replied “Most likely Helms, Feliz, or maybe even Burrell.  The season is still early, and we will get that settled when the time is right.” Later asked what he thought of the trade, Manuel said “I believe Gillick knows what he is doing, and this club is headed in the right direction with this move.”  Also traded today was starting pitcher Adam Eaton, who was sent to the San Francisco Giants for a player to be named later, or cash.”

Well, it certainly has been a while since I posted, hasn’t it?  Here’s a post I’ve been meaning to do for a while, comparing the current Phillies left fielder to the team’s greatest slugger (as of now).  This post more than makes up for my month-long absence. It’s ~800 words.  Enjoy!Mike Schmidt Pic vs. Pat the Bat (more…)

That’s right phans, our Phightins signed another (cheaper) Pat Burrell, and another reliever named Durbin akin to the former red-pinstriper Brandon Duckworth. The two signed today (12/20/07), and the press conference was at 3:30 PM, but yours truly did not see it. Here’s the link from Phillies.com that announced the signings. Jenkins is expected to split right field with Jayson Werth, and most likely start against righties. Durbin is expected to be one of the bajillion pitchers who will be fighting for the fifth spot in the rotation, but he will likely end up in the ‘pen with the other Durbin. Numbers and more below the phold. (more…)

Anyone who knows me knows I hated the Freddy Garcia trade. Absolutely hated it. And my hatred for it was only justified during the season. But, in order to get Garcia, we had to give away my favorite player (at the time), but for a just cause. Jim Thome went to the Chicago White Sox (defending World Champs) for Center Fielder Aaron Rowand, and minor league pitchers Gio Gonzalez, and Danny Haigwood. The reason behind this trade was defending Rookie of the Year Ryan Howard‘s emergence, which was better than I expected, so I embraced this trade. The “Phightin’s” were supposed to win out in the long run, but they haven’t yet, and it looks increasingly likely that they won’t ever. 2006 numbers are after the “phold”.
