    Lightbulb Phillies Trade Freddy Galvis and Sign Carlos Santana

    Two big deals for them today.

    * Freddy Galvis dealt to SD for RHP Enyel de los Santos. (Clears the way for Crawford to be their SS.)

    * Carlos Santana signed to a 3 year/$60M deal. (Wonder what this means for Hoskins.)

    LOVE the Santana signing for most teams, but where does he fit in with a bunch of (hopefully) rising hitters?

    No buzz about around here yet, but I guess the Tommy Joseph experience is officially over. Hoskins to LF is the thinking.

    And man, I know it's a pop hit, but "Smooth" with the guy from MB20 was a GREAT song!

    It's a move that requires another move...an outfielder and Cesar Hernandez seem like the start of a decent package for pitching.

    Hoskins to Baltimore for Machado!!! (One can only wonder).

    I agree that LF is where Hoskins lands.

    Do not sleep on the Phillies in the next few years. Looking forward to seeing their squad in the coming years.

    If Machado had longer control or signed for significantly less than market value...

    Carlos Santana has been a highly underrated player these last couple years. He's never hit for a great AVG but he always puts up a high OBP and has been good for a .800+ OPS with 20-35 HR power. His strikeout and walk counts have been nearly identical too. He's put up 3+ WAR in all but one of his full seasons in the majors so he's been worth the $20 mil a year he'll receive from this contract.

    I'm assuming they'll be moving Hoskins to the outfield.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    I don't see Indians games much, but people are having about his defense. Is that accurate?

    I assumed he was a hit, no glove, should be a DH guy...

    Santana was a gold glove finalist this year for whatever it's worth. I'm no a Philly Phan but I think it's a good move for them, veteran player in a young clubhouse, got some thump, not a long deal etc...if they get some more.pitchibg and the arms they have stay healthy and progress could be a real dangerous team some time soon.

    He actually displayed well above average (borderline gold glove) defense at 1st this year & his defense at 1st has shown marked improvement these last couple seasons. In previous years his defense was pretty shabby & he was never a great defensive catcher. Defensively he should do just fine as the everyday 1st baseman for the Phillies, although I don't really expect him to finish as a gold glove finalist again.

    Nice move by the Phillies. He will fit in nicely at 1B and will be a plus in the clubhouse, which is good, since Galvis is gone. Outfield looks pretty strong for next year. Hernandez likely will be traded for pitching. Go Phillies!!
