Seriously if I'm the Phils I play Polanco at 2b and find some random corner bat for peanuts, like Pedro Feliz or whoever.
Uggla at 3rd? Cmon now, the dude can hardly play his own position. If he had any versatility in him whatsoever you'd have seen it by now.

Oh lord despite his decline in play that's almost as hard to stomach as Jeff Conine being a Phillie. And then a Met.

I'll still never forget that game versus the Mets when they fielded Lo Duca, Delgado, Castillo, Easley, Conine, in that game, with Guillermo Mota coming out of the pen and Jason Vargas on the mound. And, if I'm not mistaken, even Moises Alou came up for an AB. I remember it ever so vaguely, Conine and Easley brought into the game and it was all Marlins versus their old team. Makes ya sick to your stomach.

Yes, I haven't heard that one before.

But then again, despite an awful trade or two, and despite the tight restrictions on cash brought about by Jeffery Loria (who has really been spending it up this year), this team looks like a true WC contender, and if it were not for the Phillies a strong division contender.

Quite honestly, I'll take my 2 rings in less than 20 years of existence any day if it means trading our players away. Just sayin'.

I was informed while playing basketball that Castillo was signed. Every Philly fan within ear shot started swearing profusely.

What an awful signing.

I was at Wrigley when the Cubs announced that they traded Neifi Perez to the Tigers. People saw my Detroit hat and bought me beer. Fuckers.

The Oliver Perez era with the Mets is over.

Perez was told he has been released during a early meeting Monday morning with manager Terry Collins and general manager Sandy Alderson, Perez said.

When Perez emerged from the meeting a few minutes past 8, he immediately went around the clubhouse, shaking hands and saying goodbye to players.



i think ollie looks good in red, too.

Getting rid of Castillo and Perez is the best thing the Mets could do.

I'm not at all confident in this team, despite having the "greatest pitching staff since forever" or whatever we're supposed to be masturbating over right now.
