Change is good. Addition by subtraction, win for the gipper, where's the beef, the end of hostilities are officially over, etc. etc.

Seriously though-

yes for now we will miss his glove and rocket arm but.. we won't miss this:

It's a win-win situation for the Phillies and the Giants.

How many of you would have NOT wanted to trade Feliz for Rowand? ---because in effect that is what just happened.

Pedro represents one of the last of the 2002 WS chokers in my mind. ( I am not blaming Pete Hacky for that debacle but that DH "performance" of his, was followed by endless years of more of the same.)

Sure, he apparently is a nice guy, but I for one am glad to see one more of the bad attitudes and the "no passion" guys gone.
(Pedro falls into the latter category.)

Now let's send Angel some slim fast and get him on the fast track for 2009.

How does that prove Sabean will overpay? Wasn't Feliz signed to a 1 year 5 million dollar contract by the Giants last year?

Yeah I didn't follow that logic either. Feliz did have a one year 5 mill contract last season, and the idea was for him to use last season to that prove he deserved a longer contract and a better paycheck.
 Well, he didn't prove it, and so he did not get a multi year offer from the Giants which is what he was holding out for. One could also point out that since the Phillies gave him two years and Sabean obviously didn't, that Sabean refused to "overpay" the extra 3.5 million.

I dislike Sabean, but he did right by us in this case.

Say hello to the Dominican Mike [sign in to see URL] not.

Best of luck, Hap. The fans over there are much more forgiving.

Time to give Sabean some credit. Offering Feliz arbitration was a wide decision. Turning around and offering Feliz a two year contract was not so wise, but hey alls well that ends well!

I think he means...

According to the chron, the giants actually offered a 2yr contract worth MORE than he accepted with the phillies. The reason he turned the giants down is because he felt they were pressuring him (they gave him an acceptance deadline) and it was less per year than he made last year ([sign in to see URL]).

He felt slighted, so he accepted philly's offer. Sabes actually tried to sign the poor bastard.
