As the more regular visitors to this site will see, we're messing around with the look a little bit. Actually, the early reviews indicate that the new layout is a rip-off of the old site... maybe. Instead of calling it a "rip-off" I'll call it a "throwback." You know, kind of like the Phillies new uniforms that look just like their old ones from the late 1940s.
Everything old is new again, right?
Anyway, as other folks may have heard, a sucker is born every minute. In that regard, the Florida Marlins agreed to send a player to be named later to the Phillies for the recently designated Wes Helms.
I'm not certain, but Helms' arrival to the Marlins might push the team's payroll slightly greater than Alex Rodriguez's annual salary.
Nonetheless, the Phillies can finally close the book on The Wes Helms Era. Unlike other eras in Phillies' history, Helms' one season with the team resulted in a playoff appearance.
Take that, Mike Lieberthal.
