Benson in the house!


The long-discussed deal with RHP Kris Benson came to fruition today, with the Phillies signing the oft-injured former first overall draft pick to a minor league deal.

This isn't terrible, really.  There aren't any sure things left out there.  The Phillies are going to have to throw a lot of crap against the wall pitching-wise, and see what sticks.  I'd rather they take a flyer on a guy like this then sink $30MM in someone like Kyle Lohse.

So now the question is when he'll be ready to go.  Labrum surgery is very, very ominous.  I think May is optimistic.
