Name That Phillies- Barely Remembered Edition


This former collegiate stud was a 1st round pick that became a MLB dud. His time with the Phillies was generally forgettable. In fact, his entire career seems to be just that. He did nearly get some street cred by signing with the Pirates, which would have made him a Phucco, but he never did make the club to get the official title. Go ahead and rack your brain and name that Phillie...

Hint- early 90's.

how about chad McConnell

Phils sign journeyman outfielder Laynce Nix to a 2 year deal. He's 31 and can only hit righties. I like him as a part-time player, but once again I have no idea why the hell Amaro guarantees 2 years.

Phils bench:
1. Nix
2. Thome
3. Wigginton
4. Schneider
5. Valdez or Martinez

The Nix signing means Ben Francisco is likely non-tendered and hopefully Mini-Mart goes to Lehigh Valley.

Post on Nix forthcoming (Monday).

Very nice addition in Nix. Added bonus of takibg a Phillie killer off the market.

Reyes signs with the Marlins.

Welcome Back J-Roll.

4 years at 40 mil. Way too much but you deserve to retire as a Phillie.

Please take care of your Hammys.

Dom Brown starting in AAA and that is a good thing.

Nix deal is good news. Have watched him in DC for a while and see good value there as long as RAJ didn't go nuts with the checkook.
