    Quite unexpected, but he could be a decent pick up.

  2. he is horrible, doesn’t hurt them though since it’s only a minor league deal.

    Looks like Werth’s replacement is already lined up.

  4. It still surprises me to look back and see that Wilkerson was worth 9.5 WAR in 2003-2004 for Montreal.

        By leading off that season. He re-injured the same shoulder he hurt in 2000 in the minors and was never the same. If he’s 100% healthy and re-dedicated to baseball, who knows?

    Wow I swear regardless of how bad a player does they will still get signed.

    I would be absolutely shocked to see him play for Philly this year. Nothing more than depth.

  9. Just what the Phillies need, more left-handed batters!

    Wilkerson is all washed up. Toronto gave him a chance and he blew it. Oh well first you get our best (Halladay) now you get our worst.
