Phillies Get Help at Hot Corner
The Phillies improved their team yesterday with the signing of third baseman Pedro Feliz. Feliz is definitely a step up from Wes Helms and Greg Dobbs, who were the main starters last year at the hot corner. Wes Helms definetly had a off year last year and don't be surprised if the Phillies release him or trade him. I think they should keep Dobbs, who is a pretty good hitter. Let's get back to Feliz. He is an excellent fielder who can drive the ball. They signed the 32-year old Feliz to a 2 year contract worth 8.5 million. Feliz smacked 20 homers and 72 RBIs while batting 253, definitely a step up for the Phils. I like this move and think it will improve the team.
