    Should be entertaining to see how Boras tries to bill Millwood as a frontline starter after the season…

    Man, nice job ACES. Polanco, Figgins and Huff in particular look like VERY nice deals for the player considering their modest skill sets.

      Polanco was a steal for the Phils. That organization is on fire, though. They should not really count.

        Polanco was not a steal, 3 years is overpayment, 6MM per is all fine and well, but the Phillies should not have ever offered 3 years.

          I agree. I think there was a pretty detailed post and discussion that outlined why the Phills overpaid for Polanco a while ago. The market was not dishing out 3 years 18mm for guys like Polanco. Could very well be a good addition over the next couple years, but they could have gotten him for less.

          If they hadn’t offered 3 years, then the average salary per year would have increased. Thus, signing Halladay to an extension would have been tougher, and probably would have diminished all hope of them re-signing Jayson Werth. Also, if they choose to buy out Polanco’s final year, it will be much more affordable than contracts they’ve previously eaten (Thome, Jenkins, Eaton, etc…)
