10 games out call for desperate measures.

Which would mean the Phillies are on the hook for all his salary.

Maybe he was "TIPPING" his pitches?

wow...first they get Hancock and then White....they sure do have a knack for picking up our leftover relievers, and the ones that weren't even doing that hot either....boy I bet you never thought you would here Rick White and hot in the same sentence, huh?

I think this just demonstrates how weak the reliever market is right now and the fact that just about every team has that same need.

Speaking of Josh Hancock...he is not doing too bad for the Cards

Oops!!! My fault...I was thinking of the team he was with before the Reds. Yes, he is a Cardinal now.

Very nice, means we get off the hook for his salary even if it was only $600,000.

$600,000 that probably won't net much in return, but it's better than a loss. If I was :castellini: I would have a free hot dog day sometime real soon at the ballpark to celebrate this good fortune of someone picking up White and his contract. That's free money so we, as fans, should get some free food out of it. I guarantee you if he does this, it'd be a sellout or close to one. Fans love free stuff.

No offense TC, but Rick White could go invisible on all of us and you could still hit it.

He might be tipping some buffet tables, or a Dairy Queen, or stiffing the tip at the local watering hole. But tipping the pitches might be the least of this worries.

Per ESPN.com transactions page:

Claimed pitcher Rick White off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds; signed pitcher Michael Dubee.


I think this was slightly misprinted. It should read:

Claimed pitcher Rick White off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds after front office finished smoking Doobies.:laugh:

Phillies claim RHP Rick White from Reds

RHP Rick White was claimed by the Phillies this afternoon off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds, Assistant General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced.
White, 37, was 1-0 with one save and a 6.26 ERA (19 ER in 27.1 IP) in 26 games for the Reds this season. He was designated for assignment on June 19.

The native of Springfield, OH is a 10-year major league reliever who has pitched for the Pirates (1994-95, 2005), Devil Rays (1998-2000), Mets (2000-01), Rockies (2002), Cardinals (2002), White Sox (2003), Astros (2003), Indians (2004) and Reds (2006). He has a 4.31 career ERA (377 ER in 786.2 IP) in 546 games. In his career, he has walked 256 and struck out 501.

"He is a veteran right-hander who has obviously had experience in the bullpen," stated Amaro. "We felt we needed to add some depth, so we decided to make the claim."

White is expected to join the team in Boston on Saturday in time for the 1:20 game. Moves, both on the 40-man and 25-man rosters, will be made at that time.
