I agree wholeheartedly J. Very frustrating.

I agree as well and today did a breakdown of what closers are paid on my new, crude blog. he might be going to boston for nothing (to us) when we could have gotten something for him.

It makes sense to me. Billy wants to be a closer for a team going to the postseason. The teams going to the postseason usually are the ones with huge payrolls. If he ups his offer, only a really rich (thus probably playoff-bound) team will be able to afford him.

While I'd love to see Billy get his 300th save in a Phillies uniform, he simply isn't worth $30m/3yr. No reliever is.

what could we realistically have gotten for wagner? i know the sox wanted him, but they wouldn't have given up any pitching to get him (not that they really have any). their top trading-block prospect is a middle infielder, which does us no good. who else would he have gone to, keeping in mind that it would have had to be a contender?

and the padilla-as-closer scenario really scares me. maybe i'm the only one, but i just don't see it.

We could have gotten Youk and Shopach at least; The exact 2 positions we are weakest at. You probably could have moved Hanley to third, maybe?

The whole Owner/CEO acting as GM is what pisses me off the most.

the impression i got was that shoppach was off-limits, with mirabelli already like 35 or something and varitek no spring chicken either. youkilis would instantly become a starter, but if he took over at 3B it would preclude moving ramirez there (has hanley ever played 3B?).

which gets down to my sticking point: shouldn't wagner be worth more in this admittedly retrospective hypothetical situation?

They could always try to non-tender Vicente and bring him back in the hopes of making him the set-up guy.

I'd really like to see them try to exploit this Derek Lowe situation in LA. Make an NBA-style trade of Lieberthal (their stud catcher is Russ Martin at AA) and prospects and take on the remainder of Lowe's commitment.... Lieby's salary and Lowe's would almost even out for next year and Randy's contract comes off the books at the end of next year. Lowe's GB/FB ratio was 2.78:1 last year....

After that, try to move Thome and Bell and Abreu... A lot of Peter Gammons' "Ifs" to be sure, but if Konerko leaves the Sox for greener ($) pastures and if the Phillies pick up a portion of the remainding financial load then maybe we could wrestle away someone like McCarthy or Marte or Crede and some prospects.

Sorry, rambling....

gr: The link to your site has been posted. Good stuff. Keep it going.

MPN: I'd jump on Lowe too, brother.

The whole Owner/CEO acting as GM is what pisses me off the most.

Me too, but I certainly wouldn't want Wade meeting with Wagner. So far so good, as nobody's made a move. Hopefully it can be put off until the new GM steps in.

Also, I don't think this is Monty playing GM, it's Amaro's trial by fire.

If Wags signs elsewhere do we get compensatory draft picks? That would be reason alone to let him walk, never mind the chance to spend the money better elsewhere.

I believe they get one pick for it. About 75 percent certain of that though.

Hello

I don't know about you, but I've always been intrigued by the lure of Viagra. Now in release for years, it has become something of a Holy Grail for men who felt their best sexual days were long past, as well as giving hope to the rest of us who fear that day when sex fades into our twilight.

And so, after trying everything natural I could find (Tribulus, Spanish Fly, LoveRX, Horny Goat Weed, and VigRx), I decided to try the real deal to see how it compared. Acquiring the drug is as simple as filling out a questionnaire online and paying a small "consultation" fee, then purchasing the pills for anywhere from $1.67 per dose (quantities of 90) to $3.00-$4.00 (10-30 quantity).

Viagra works when a man is sexually aroused, the arteries in the penis relax and widen, allowing more blood to flow into the penis. As the arteries in the penis expand, the veins that normally carry blood away from the penis become compressed, restricting the blood flow out of the penis. With more blood flowing in and less flowing out, the penis enlarges, resulting in an erection.

During love making, I definitely had more stamina and "held out" longer, but not to the extent that one could label me Casanova. However, the fact that I was erect and ready to go only moments later surely was different in that my erection was as hard as ever. Usually, even though I might be able to perform a second time after some coaxing from my hot wife, rarely is my penis rock hard.

In summation, I didn't experience any of the documented known side-effects, which can include headache, facial flushing, sensitivity to light and other. . For me, the drug performed as advertised, but be aware that its documented success rate remains approximately 80%, so there are no guarantees. I'll probably wait until I actually need the product (hopefully in my 90's) before consuming it again, but a new competitive product has come (Levitra) to market that I'll try soon and compare in a future article.
