Omar Vizquel's name is being floated around as a possible replacement for the newly departed Eric Bruntlett. Vizquel, who is 42, still manages to be in excellent shape and play outstanding defense at multiple positions (SS, 2nd, and 3rd), but his bat is weak. Of course, a crusty piece of pooh could replace Bruntlett, so I'm not going to complain much if the Phillies decide to go this route. Last year with the Texas Rangers he hit .266 with a .660 OPS. Like I said, better than Bruntlett. Vizquel's role would be limited anyway, because Rollins and Utley are everyday players that do not need defensive replacements. The only question mark in the Phils infield is currently at 3rd base. Despite turning 43 at the beginning of the 2010 season, Omar still has decent speed, so he has the ability to be used as a pinch-runner, plus he's a switch hitter, which also adds to his value.
Chan Ho Park had a bad season and a good season with the Phillies last year. He was bad as a starting pitcher: 1-1, 7.29 ERA, 1.74 WHIP in 7 starts. He was good as a reliever: 2-2, 2.52 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and no homeruns allowed in 50 innings pitched. Despite the huge discrepancy between roles, he still yearns to be a starting pitcher. However, the Phillies are not considering him for that capacity, they view him strictly as a reliever. I hope he's brought back into the fold, and becomes the go-to guy in the 7th, but there's plenty of offseason yet to play out.
