to an extent. you need 1 more bat to complement what you have now. i dont see how you cant go get it, this the prime for rollins, utley and howard. not signing someone now is pointless. you have a 4-5 year window now to win the series with these guys. dont be the eagles.

normally i agree they don't need another bat, but 3rd base is such an abyss for them for offensively and defensively and Lowell fills both needs.  he's a right handed bat, which they need, he plays defense, so you won't have replace him late in the game.  he really seems like a perfect fit.

Yes. Yes.  Yes.  Yes.  And yes.

A-Rod is the better player, but is beyond the Phils' budget (he'll be the Red Sox' replacement for Lowell if he does leave the Yanks).  Lowell will fill the Phils' need offensively and defensively.

The only caveat is that he'll be 34 next season.  Don't want more than a 2-3 year contract.  He'll probably get four, and the Phils will have to take it if they really want him.

im not saying dont get mike lowell but he wont make one bit of difference in this team....yeah they might score a few more runs but it wouldnt be a tangible difference in wins and losses

they need two quality starters and a real manager and then we can talk postseason wins

I thought Mike Lowell should have been on this team two years ago (LOL - Check This Thread Out) and still think he'd be an ideal addition to the team.

He's a veteran that would provide a stabilizing force at a position that has been chaotic since Rolen left.  He's a right-handed bat that would further protect Utley or Howard depending on where he would be placed in the lineup, and he's going to be there for the taking if the farging Phillies will simply spend the money to get him.

I could go either way with Lowell, but I wouldn't be upset if they signed him. Would love to see Schilling back for a season. Think a guy like Linebrink in middle relief would be good insurance in case Gordon's arm falls off or Romero was just a fluke.

Any guesses on how much they spend this offseason? My guess is $30 million

$15.  Not million.  Fifteen bucks.

With the manager not under contract, all of their coaches jobs are in jeopardy.

Yeah, pitching was the issue.  This team has an ERA of around 5.  They gave up 6, 10 and 2.  18 runs in 3 games.  By my math, that's an ERA of 6.00 in the playoffs.  Not much dropoff from the regular season.  Game one was pretty much par for the course, game 2 was bad but let's not forget that was a rookie mid season call up on the hill and game 3 was phenominal. 

Offensivley this team averaged about 6 runs scored per game in the reg season.  They scored 3, 5 and 1.  9 runs in 3 games which comes out to 3 runs per game.  And their team batting average dropped .100.  Plus, they averaged about 8 k's a game. 

Yes.  Clearly pitching was the problem.

It's Dubee's fault Mesa, Alfonseca, Eaton and all sucked. And it's his fault 75 year old Moyer was mediocre. Go team.
