I'm not sure why, but here at WSBGM's we love facial hair. Last year we took a liking to Sal Fasano and that gnarly fu-manchu, and even showed refuge to Rick "the Beard" White. A player could completely suck, but if they have some kick ass facial hair, they will hold a special place in our hearts. Rich Schu is a hero of ours...enough said. Speaking of facial hair...the Phillies are rumored to be looking at free agent Dustin Hermanson. He has a chronic back, but if healthy, he could be a nice addition to the bullpen. He was a closer for the ChiSox in 04-05 and has a decent career ERA of 4.21 and a WHIP of 1.36. I'm pretty sure it would only take a minor league contract at this stage of the game to land him...Gillick, take the chance!
*With the recent lock-ups of Utley and Myers, should the Phils roll out the red carpet and ink Howard long term or wait until next offseason?
*If Victorino learns the art of stealing (bases that is), how many is he capable of swiping?
*If you were Antonio Alfonseca, would you throw a 6-fingered palm ball?
*If you were related to Charlie Manuel, would you admit it?
