Last year at this time we were awkwardly enjoying watching Charlie Manuel fondle himself over the sight of Roy Halladay tossing from the mound in a Phils jersey for the first time.
Then two years ago we were scoping some Phillies doppelgangers...
Just three short years ago we were examining the upcoming arbitration hearing for Ryan Howard; debating over $7 or $10M as the right figure for the slugger. Wish he was still only making one of those amounts. Hell, I wouldn't even mind if he made that amount combined.
Way back in 2007 we were actually advocating for Wes Helms as starting third baseman. Shows how scarred we from the David Bell era. Of course, the other option at 3rd at the time of this post was No-Hit Nunez, so you can understand our folly.
