Carlos Beltran would be sweet on this team right now at the right price. He's a talented ******* in a contract year. What more could you want?
I agree, Dom Brown's youth and inexperience is not helping the world series cause right now. Thats not me saying he needs to be traded or I'm running him out of town. I would just rather have a more experienced player right now instead of Brown's tentativeness and inexperience.
Ryan Howard is absolutely awful. I hate him with a passion. And his contract starts next year...

I completely blame Manual and Thompson/Gross for Howard's regression. All Howard wants to do is pull the ball, teams just dare him to hit the ball to left field and he cannot do it.
If the likes of Prince Fielder, Albert Pujols and David Ortiz can hit the ball to left field, there is absolutely no excuse for Howard not being able to.
Howard has always shared a similar thorn in my side that I had with Carter, (not to derail a Phillies thread), just feel that they are both immensely talented but have dubious holes in their games that leave you scratching your head. The simple fact that a soon to be $25 million dollar bat essentially, is little to no threat to hit the ball to an entire half of the field is laughable....
and as I write this he hits a RBI single between 3rd base and 2nd...
Does anyone else think the Stutes is becoming a stud? He was brilliant last night and I think he paired with Bastardo are just lights out. Also I would love for the Phils to go out and get Beltran. I feel that he could really add to the offense and is more than reliable replacement for Ibanez when he's gone or when he's going through one of his slumps.
Firstly, that's a ****-ton of money for August onward. Secondly, I guess you missed the part where they're looking to eat salary if it means getting a better return?
Was just letting the OP know that it wasn't a full seasons salary left to pay. Not sure why you made your second point to me, but even if they eat the rest of his contract he's still not worth Brown, Worley and another kid.
