Stay Tuned 

Yeah, I was supposed to post my Season Preview for the Phillies today but I am a little behind. Stay tuned, I expect to post Wednesday. Hopefully.

In the meanwhile, check out this article from The Hardball Times talking about the Bobby Abreu deal. If you want to skip to the conclusions: the Phillies got nothing for Abreu but got to dump his salary on the only team in the MLB that could take it.

Also, apparently Adam Eaton has won the #5 starter job from Chad Durbin and Travis Blackley, apparently pitching well enough to take the job. Count on Durbin, who will move to the bullpen, to get some starts if / when Eaton and Kyle Kendrick struggle.

You said it right, the Phillies didn't get anyone for him. They just didn't want to pay him anymore.

Imagine if he stayed with the Phils - I have one word for that: OFFENSE

Abreu was one of the most under appreciated ballplayers who ever played in Philly, and he was really great.
