During a busy day, the Phillies let go Geoff Jenkins. Despite the fact I can barely tell him and Eric Bruntlett apart from more than 30 feet, I’m saddened by this loss. If you’ve been reading this blog — or truthfully any one post — you can tell I’m a sucker for heart, something Jenkins, who only ever played a reserve role for the Phils, definitely has a lot of. He loves the game of baseball, and that means I love him.
Alas, heart doesn’t always score runs (or prevent them) so Geoff had to go.
On the heels of that move, the Champs announced they are interested in Gary Sheffield and Andruw Jones. Chan Ho Park also got the fifth starter position, and Meyers got opening day rights (his third in a row).
