Phillies Breakfast Links, August 18, 2009: Signing Deadline, Pedro Comes Home, Brett "The Mystery" Myers


Phillies Sign Seventh-Round Pick Brody Colvin
They got Colvin which is great, but failed to sign Jake Stewart and Andrew Susac. I have a hunch they got a read on which was most receptive (Colvin) and went hard after him. Looks like there was no way Susac was signing.


Washington Nationals SIGN STEPHEN STRASBURG!!!!
From Federal Baseball. I'm glad they were able to pull it off.
