The mighty midget of Fox Sports, Ken Rosenthal, is reporting Geoff Jenkins will soon decide between the Padres and the Phillies. I'm guessing the Phils actually beat out the Friars on this one. We've lost 2 free agents to the butt-bags in San Diego already this offseason (Randy Wolf and Tadahito Iguchi), but hopefully the third time is a charm. Why do I think Philly has the upperhand this time? First- Jenkins will love the Brick Cit House far more than the cavernous park in Sandy. Second- the Pads (Maxi-Pads that is) just traded for oft-injured prick Jim Edmonds, which means they may be done fiddling around with their outfield now.
Now that I've determined Brett Favre, oops, I mean Geoff Jenkins is destined for Philadelphia, the question remains do we want him...I do. I'm guessing if signed, Jenkins gets a reasonable 1 year 5 million dollar deal with a vesting option year. Currently the Phils have "The Bat" if LF, the Flying Hawaiian in CF, and Werth/Werthless in RF. Yes, Jayson Werth is suffering from dual personalities, as when Werth he has worth against lefties, but when his alter-ego Werthless rears his ugly head he his worthless against righties...hence the need for a Jenkins platoon who happens to WHAM! righties to the tune of a .883 lifetime OPS versus them.
