Saturday Fodder: Cory Sullivan

You may be wondering- Why exactly does Cory Sullivan deserve a featured post on WSBGMs? Well, it's Saturday, spring training hasn't started yet and there's really not much worth writing about. So, say hello to Cory Sullivan, the newest member of has-beens that Amaro has signed to minor league contracts to add "depth" to the organization. Hey, at least it wasn't Sarge Jr.

Anyway, the 31 year old Pennsylvania born Sullivan is a veteran of 6 MLB seasons; mostly with the Rockies, but also with the Mets and Astros. He's played all 3 outfield positions and owns a .271/.708 AVG/OPS in 476 games (although he hit only .188/.492 last year). Attempting to put a positive spin on this, I would like to point out that he's killed the horsehide in Citizens Bank Park (.372/1.030 in 50 plate appearances).

Bet you can't wait to see him patrol center field this season...in Allentown.

From Jayson Stark:
ACES HIGH: Whatever happened to the theory that no big-time pitchers would ever want to pitch in Citizens Bank Park, huh? The Phillies are turning that one into a bigger myth than Charlie Sheen's "laugh-induced abdominal pain." This spring, the Phillies will assemble a rotation that has combined for three Cy Youngs, 10 other top-five Cy Young finishes, a World Series MVP award, two LCS MVP awards, 18 Opening Day starts (by four different pitchers), six 20-win seasons and 13 trips to the All-Star Game. So can they all make it through spring training without Tommy John surgery? If so, this team should be departing scenic Clearwater, Fla., as your official NL favorite.
