Found November 21, 2011 on We Should Be GM's:
From a post I did on More Hardball back in 2008...Being a former college athlete I'm sorta okay with that whole butt slap thing, but grabbing another dude's junk is out of line and borderline (ahem...over-the-top) gay.Yep, that's Jonathan Papelbon in the picture grabbing the crotch of Manny Ramirez. Does this make Papelbon (aka- Cinco Ocho) a "junk baller"?

Phillies trade for bench bat Ty Wiggington

If the Phillies do nothing else this offseason, they at least will have a much improved bench.  According to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly, the Phillies have acquired Ty Wiggington from the Rockies for cash and a player to be named later.  The trade comes with basically no risk, especially considering that the Rockies will also pay half of Wiggington's 4 million dollar salary...

Ty Wigginton Traded to Phillies; Jim Thome Avoids Imminent Broken Hip

Seriously, if Jim Thome was even considering playing first base for the Philadelphia Phillies until Ryan Howard got better, he had another thing coming. Like hip surgery. The Colorado Rockies have no use for Ty Wigginton anymore, so they traded him away to the Phillies for some cash or a player to be named later. Not a bad deal for Philly though either, considering all they...

Trading for Wigginton is Like Shopping at Marshall’s

(Photo: AP)Stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx do great business by selling surplus designer merchandise at prices significantly lower than retail department stores. Often times, you can find merchandise that is literally identical to products found in Bloomingdales and Macy’s. I’m not sure if Ruben Amaro Jr. shops at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx, but the acquisition of Ty Wigginton...

Daniel Bard Moving to Red Sox Closer Would Make Sense After Early Free-Agent Signings Set Market

Jonathan Papelbon wasted no time leaving Boston for Philadelphia. For four years, and $50 million, who can really blame him? A couple of weeks later, fellow free agent Joe Nathan cashed in with a two-year deal worth $15 million. Papelbon's contract will set the standard for a saturated market for closers, and giving a 36-year-old closer just two years removed from Tommy John...

Victorino honored with special day in Hawaii

Shane Victorino has always had the nickname, and now he has a holiday to go with it. Victorino, the aptly-named "Flyin' Hawaiian" on Philadelphia's roster, learned Monday that Hawaii governor Neil Abercrombie has recognized his achievements by enacting Shane Victorino Day.

Phillies Get Ty Wigginton in Deal with Rockies

The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired utility infielder Ty Wigginton for a player to be named later or cash from the Colorado Rockies. The 34 year old plays third base, second base, and first base. Wigginton hit .242 with 15 homeruns in 130 games for the Rockies in 2011. He is a career .265 hitter with 158 homeruns. Wigginton will give the Phillies some flexibility in the infield...

Impact: Phillies Acquire Wigginton

Brendan's take: In a move sure to go under the radar to most fantasy players, the Phillies acquired Ty Wigginton from the Rockies. He'll prove valuable in not only NL leagues but also in deeper mixed daily ones. His multi-position eligibility is a perfect fit for the Phillies, who have an aging Utley and Polanco at second and third respectively, an injured Ryan Howard, and...

Fantasy Baseball Projection: Joe Nathan

With Jonathan Papelbon signing with the Phillies, the next big name closer signing is that of Joe Nathan who signed a 2 year, $14 million deal with the Rangers. With the loss of Nathan, the Minnesota Twins lose their all-time career saves leader. Nathan's durability is in question. The deal sends Neftali Feliz, who saved 72 games over the past two seasons, into the Rangers’...
