Phillies put Sebastien Valle, Phillipe Aumont and Jakob Diekman on 40-man. Definitely keeping my eyes on Valle at AA-Reading this year but the other two look like future set-up man and a LOOGY. I wouldn't be shocked to see Diekman make the 25-man though.
I hate interleague games, though. I don't mind some of the match ups...like ny-ny, kc-stl, etc. (local)
But, in general, I've always hated it. It's ruined the game in a lot of ways. All-Star game means dick since interleague began, world series means less...
The leagues should be separate. The game benefitted from the speculation if the unknown. The air of mystery is gone. Think what the hype would have been all season for a potential Red Sox-Phillies World Series... But in this day, they played a couple series and no one cared after that....
What makes you say that? They are one of a handful of teams showing interest in him. It's still very early in this. He's visiting the Angels on Monday...as well as visiting other teams after that. I don't see them as front-runners for his services and it's not even close to a sure thing IMO
with that said, I hope they do get him, depending on the cost. Don't think I want to see the Halos go over 5yr/$90 million for his services. If some team offers him more than that, then best of luck to them
As well he should...Congrats, now lets lock him up to an extension ASAP.
He's got three years of arbitration, he'll get his deal but the team has said they are no hurry to get him an extension. I wouldn't be surprised to see the team try to shed some payroll to make room for his deal. Ted Lilly and Juan Uribe have two years left on their deals. I wouldn't be surprised if Either is moved at some point either.
