Flyin' Hawaiian Agrees to Deal

Late breaking news on this Thursday night, Shane Victorino has agreed to a three-year, $22 million contract. While my hatred for Victorino has been well documented, this is a great signing for the Phillies. That means the entire core of the team, outside of Jayson Werth, is now signed through at least 2011.

While he takes too many gambles in the field and he pops up wayyyyyy too much, he is a valuable part of this team. Charlie Manuel (who lost a shitload of weight this offseason) has said Polanco will bat second, likely moving Victorino down the seven spot. I like that for Victorino and he should still score his 90+ runs and have his 25+ stolen bases.

Good job Ruben.

Ok, back to Jersey Shore.
