Phillies Pursuing Weathers
In a story the Philadelphia Inquirer today, Todd Zolecki says that the Phillies are interested in David Weathers:
The Phillies are interested in free-agent righthanders Joe Borowski (3-3, 3.75 ERA and 36 saves with Florida) and David Weathers (4-4, 3.54, 12 saves with Cincinnati) because Gillick would like to have better options should closer Tom Gordon get hurt again.
It's not as stupid as the idea of the Yankees going after Eddie Guardado, but it's still surprising to see the name of any Reds' reliever mentioned.
If only someone wanted Franklin.
I’m on record as requesting the Reds retain Franklin’s services in ’07. It would make the Bud Select flow more smoothly.
I’m sure it would make the Bud Select flow more quickly, as in, “Franklin’s coming in. I need a drink quick!”
