  • Personally it is a good idea, he wouldn't have seen much playing time and is not a great base runner. He is fast, but needs to learn how to run the bases better.

    • Roberson is a 5th OF at best. Getting some cash for him and opening up a roster spot (he probably wasn't going to compete that much anyway) was a good idea.

        • The owners tend to do that or apply it to their bottom line. That money could go to scouting or to signing a minor league FA.

            • Phils sign Pedro Feliz (According to ESPN and it's on their website) not a bad signing and they can trade Wes Helms for Scott Nestor (Rumor, he's on the Marlins) but i like Feliz, now all we need is Kyle Lohse or Livan Hernandez

              • This deal works fine for me. Feliz will get an offensive boost from playing in CB. His defense is excellent, and he can slide across to play 1B in a pinch. He's not the best hitter, but for that price, I'm not at all arguing.

                  • I like this deal. It is a nice inexpensive contract, and there is significant upside there. The guy was a former #1 overall pick and has had some success. As a #5 SP, I dig it.

                      • I think the Phillies are looking really good for 2008. The rotation is deep and still has upside. I like their bullpen this year with Lidge nailing stuff down. I absolutely love the infield defense for sure. I also think the Jenkins/Werth tandem in RF will produce as much as Rowand. I'm reading that Howard lost 15 lbs in the offseason and is feeling good. A full season of health from Utley, Howard, and Victorino should be excellent. I'm hoping for more consistency from Burrell, and more production from Ruiz.

                        • Howard wins arbitration against the Phillies. His 2008 salary will be $10mm. Phillies lost in arbitration for the first time ever under the CBA rules...

                          • Its also the lagest arbitration ever for a player that won. Soriono had 10 mil but that was in a losing battle.

                              I agree, but it will be tough facing the Mets when Santana is pitching

                              • That will happen maybe 7 times in 2008. There are 11-12 other games against the rest of their staff and another 140 games against other opponents. Santana will help, but he's not worth more than 5 wins to them a season.
