Bring Back Placido

Ruben Amaro Jr. has a chance to amend Ed bleeping Wade's mistake and bring Placido Polanco back to the Phillies. One of the most under rated players in baseball, Polanco is a gold glove fielder and the best two hole hitter in baseball. He'd make the transition back to third base easily and fit in beautifully on the team. He eared $4.6 million annually with Detriot and if the Phillies could sign him at something close to that, he'd be a major bargain and a cheaper option than Pedro Feliz.

Sure, it's a bit early for this, but that lineup would be even more ridiculous:

1. Rollins, SS
2. Polanco, 3B
3. Utley, 2B
4. Howard, 1B
5. Werth, RF
6. Victorino, CF
7. Raul Ibanez, LF
8. Carlos Ruiz, C

Shane and Raul could be interchangeable based on pitching match-ups, but I like Werth and Victorino batting after the two lefties.

Yeah, I'm dreaming, but there's nothing else to write or think about, in terms of baseball.
