Ahhh funny stuff.
I'm sure the Philly crew will enjoy that one.

Great deal for Baltimore. Houston, not so much.

Don't like the deal for Houston, but no surprise as they've had a hard-on for Miggy for a couple of years now. He just isn't that good anymore, especially not on defensively. They apparently plan to play him at SS and some dreck like Ty Wigginton at 3B; if that's the plan a smarter one would be leave Adam Everett's good glove at SS and slot Miggy into 3B. Probably about the same offense, much better D.

he'll hit a lot of homeruns in that park as he's a dead pull hitter, but he'll play a terrible third base, and on top of it, probably not a good idea to trade for miguel tejada the day before the mitchell report comes out. not good for the ole PR

Which is true. He played for Terry Francona-era Phillies teams. They sucked.

Yes, he did.

He said "some of those years." He probably meant, you know, the years they sucked. Which was most of them.

I really loved that Phillies team. John "I'm not an athlete, I'm a baseball player" Kruk, Nails Dykstra, Dutch Daulton, Wild Thing Williams, and of couse Big Schill. The 03-04 Sox reminded me of that bunch. Fun team.

Apparently Mike & the Mad Dog got a scoop on some of the names on the list...the look on Mike's face has me thinking high-profile Yankee.

Not sure if there's an obvious Phillie on the list. Not a bunch of workout freaks, that crew. Are they even going back that far? I get the impression a lot of the info came from Radomski, so I'm thinking lots of mid to late 90s guys.
