As the Phillies prepare for possible sell-off, Juan Pierre drawing interest, including from the Cincinnati Reds.
Pierre would be a fine addition. Not sure why the hate for him.
He gets on base, lifetime .346 OBP, .338 the last three years, .355 this season.
And he would't cost much in terms of prospects.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Pierre isn't an ideal guy, but at this point I will accept anyone who can actually get on base in front of Joey Votto.
oh, hell, let's just have Chone Figgins and get it over with.
He of the .306 leadoff OBP?
Pierre hasn't played any centerfield (the position where we most need an upgrade) since 2009, and his arm is a wet noodle.
He's having a bit of a down year thus far, but I think I'd rather have Victorino.
