Kyle Lohse and the Phillies?

Saturday, January 12, 2008 ·

The Philadelphia Phillies have re-opened talks with Kyle Lohse and his agent Scott Boras. Lohse has lowered his demands to now 3 years and somewhere around 25 million. A deal like this is doable for the Phillies and would not be entirely bad. Is he worth a little over 8 million? No, however, Adam Eaton is not worth 8 million and this is the market we live in. In reality, he probably deserves 2 years, 8-10 million. He has been a pretty mediocre pitcher, but he did pitch decent for us and could be a big lift to our rotation.

Lohse had said he down to three clubs, but the teams have not been released.

Recently, Ruben Amaro Jr. participated in a chat with

- They are discussing the upgrade of third base. They have had discussions with Pedro Feliz, who would be a great upgrade defensively, but he pathetic offensively.
- It is unlikely that the Phillies will re-sign Jose Mesa.
- Also, it is unlikely that they will pursue Bartolo Colon.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
