Phillies Sign Geoff Jenkins and Chad Durbin

Postby Snakes Gould » Thu Dec 20, 2007 5:10 pm

i think jenkins is a perfect signing for the phillies. platooning in both right with werth, and in left with burrell vs righties could definitely get production out of jenkins. and instead of over-spending on one of rowand, jones, or hunter, we got him for much cheaper. jenkins also has a pretty good arm i believe.

as for durbin, ho hum. i know he had a pretty good stretch for the tigers last year, but hes mediocre at best. at least we didnt spend 11 mil for the next 4 years to sign carlos silva :-B

im fairly happy with these signings as a phils fan.

Jenkins is a great fit w/ the Phillies IMO. Good signing by Gillick.

Jenkins is an above average OF vs Righties. Last season he posted an 104 OPS+, 2006 a 117 OPS+ and 2005 a 137 OPS+. He is also an above average defensive player with a strong arm. He is declining in every phase of his game but I think they'll still get two above average years out of him as long as they are strict with the platoon.

I'd certainly rather have him than Gabe Kapler who just came out of retirement and signed with the Brewers :P

The Phillies plan on maximizing production out of him, and didnt him big $.

Sounds good to me.

Have to agree - I think his decline in OBP against RHP's last year was an indication of dwindling skills due to age. A two year contract for a player who is 33 going into 08 (and turning 34 in July) with limited skills seems excessive.
If it's obvious it's probably true.

From a fantasy perspective, I think he's a great sleeper.
