Part of Pat Gillick’s Christmas Wish List:

  • Japanese player to replace Gooch,
  • Veteran hitter not named Jenkins,
  • Versatile outfielder for bench.

Those three things were filled today (12/23), with only two more days until the “big day” for most of us. With the signing of ex-Cardinal Taguchi, the Phillies now have a versatile, Japanese outfielder on the bench. The terms are believed to be a million dollars fora year, with an option for 2009. His ’07 numbers, courtesy of the baseball cube: 3 HR, 30 RBI, 7 bags stolen, 23 walks, 33 K’s, .290 AVG, .350 OBP.

That’s right phans, our Phightins signed another (cheaper) Pat Burrell, and another reliever named Durbin akin to the former red-pinstriper Brandon Duckworth. The two signed today (12/20/07), and the press conference was at 3:30 PM, but yours truly did not see it. Here’s the link from Phillies.com that announced the signings. Jenkins is expected to split right field with Jayson Werth, and most likely start against righties. Durbin is expected to be one of the bajillion pitchers who will be fighting for the fifth spot in the rotation, but he will likely end up in the ‘pen with the other Durbin. Numbers and more below the phold. (more…)
