Ask any Phillies fan if they'd like to see Vicente Padilla and his $10+ million per season back in a Phils uniform and you might get a boot to the frank & beans followed by a Hulk Hogan atomic elbow drop. So maybe you should preface that question with- getting Padilla back by trading our resident steaming pile of poop Adam Eaton...then you might just get a puzzled look rather than swollen jewels. Tis the offseason, so that means rumors aplenty, one rumor I found interesting was the classic bad contract swap scenario between old trading buddies the Rangers and Phillies. In this trade, the Rangers would send their ridiculous Vicente Padilla contract (2 yrs. $24.75 remaining) to the Phils in exchange for our heinous Adam Eaton contract (2 yrs. $16.64 remaining). As much as I detest Eaton, that trade makes absolutely no sense because each pitcher sucks (although in my opinion Padilla sucks less), and Padilla is owed about $8 million more over the next two seasons. However, what if the Rangers threw in some useful player(s) like relievers CJ Wilson or Joaquin Benoit or even extend the deal to really help us out by sending 3rd baseman Hank Blalock our way? That would entice me a whole lot more. Besides, I know Corey and I each miss that crazy Nicaraguan's switch-hitting prowess...Viva La Vicente!
