Anyone who knows me knows I hated the Freddy Garcia trade. Absolutely hated it. And my hatred for it was only justified during the season. But, in order to get Garcia, we had to give away my favorite player (at the time), but for a just cause. Jim Thome went to the Chicago White Sox (defending World Champs) for Center Fielder Aaron Rowand, and minor league pitchers Gio Gonzalez, and Danny Haigwood. The reason behind this trade was defending Rookie of the Year Ryan Howard‘s emergence, which was better than I expected, so I embraced this trade. The “Phightin’s” were supposed to win out in the long run, but they haven’t yet, and it looks increasingly likely that they won’t ever. 2006 numbers are after the “phold”.

As every phan knows, Gavin Floyd stunk it up with us. This is true, even I (his one true supporter) acknowledge this. But, with the Chicago White Sox organization in flux, he stands a chance to make the ML roster. He spent most of ’07 with the ChiSox’ AAA team, the Charlotte Knights.

Numbers: 7-3, 3.12 ERA, 35 BB, 96 K. Not so bad. Now let’s look at his major league #’s: 1-5, 5.27 , 19 BB, 49 K’s.

That’s the Gavin Floyd that everyone knows. But, continue the article to look at what pitchers are on the Sox 40 man, as of 11/20 (courtesy of Wikipedia) minus Jenks and the starters:

This is the first post of mine. What I hope to do is use this blog to enhance my site, Phillies.tk. Not sure what else to put here… A few good sitese I enjoy are:

Phuture Phillies.com (also built from WordPress),

The Phillies main page,

ESPN,

Yahoo!,

and Theplaz.com, which my friend Michael Plasmeier made. He got me started in this whole internet stuff, so I guess you could thank him for this wonderful place.
