Adam Eaton talk will surely be discussed in the Nittanydelphia live blog today.

But enough about me! This is a great way to kick start the weekend a little early!

GM-Carson said...

I'm honestly shocked they released him so early in spring training. I thought they'd hold on to him until near the end and see how he pitches this spring to see if they could sucker any team into taking him for just league minimium. Suppose they didn't want his deseased carcass around though.

Whens the parade?

GM-Carson said...

No parade, remember Eaton wasn't invited to the last one. Man he sucked!

Mike said...

I was looking forward to seeing Eaton face Burrell and the Rays tomorrow.
What team will pick Eaton up?
San Diego? Texas? Cleveland? Chunichi?

GM-Carson said...

I just got rid of Adam Eaton on the 40 man roster list we have on the left sidebar. Never has hitting the delete button been so gratifying.

GTFO EATON!!!!!!

Shit, I have to delete him from my 40 man roster as well, damn this is gonna feel good.

I love it when paying someone to do nothing is actually a good idea.

BTW, you guys should get a preseason K counter up for Howard. I wonder if they keep records on that.

GM-Carson said...

I wonder what the odds are of him appearing in a MLB game in the future are...can't be too good.

GM-Carson said...

No K Counter this year, but a "Howard" tracker. The "Howard" is any time a player hits a homerun, commits an error, and strikesout all in the same game.

LONG DRIVE: A PHILLIES BLOG said...

The "Howard Tracker" is an amazing idea Carson. Also I fully expect the Mets to sign Eaton just to ensure they will not have to face him at any point in 09'

ripjgarcia said...

I don't think Eaton could get a job coaching little leaguers right now. Moreso in this area because he'd have ZERO credibilty with the kids.

GM-Carson said...

Eaton's attitude would not be conducive to coaching kids.

GM-Carson said...

Damn, Phils losing 5-1 already after just 2 innings. Rough start to the Grapefruit League so far.

Carpenter gave up 3 hits, 3 walks, and 4 runs without retiring a batter to start the game.

Mike said...

Eaton may be able to find a spot with the Rockies' grounds crew.

GM-Carson said...

Eaton shouldn't even be allowed to be a peanut vendor...nowhere near a baseball stadium for him.

Mr Loom said...

what a great day so far, 70 and sunny here in south carolina spent the morning at the beach playing soccer and I come home to the best news ever...no more friggin adam eaton.

Hope the weather is good in the burg!

GM-Carson said...

50's and rainy here in the 'burg.

Mr. A-Hole said...

Today is a day of joy. Eaton was a waste of money, roster space, oxygen, and sperm.

GM-Carson said...

0-3 on the Grapefruit season. Only 7 runs scored, but a ghastly 24 surrendered. Spring training is stupid!

Bob D said...

I just cut Eaton off my fantasy baseball rankings, I was gonna use a 12th round pick to get him if he was available

GM-Carson said...

He was my fantasy team's namesake last year- EatonLoveFest08.

Amanda said...

Haha. I couldn't be any happier when I heard the news. THANK GOD HE IS GONE!

Mr. A-Hole said...

I think that priest touched me once.
