Hey, the Phillies signed another over-30 white guy today.

According to CSNPhilly.com, the Phillies and Laynce Nix have agreed to a two-year deal, pending a physical.

Laynce's (get used to that spelling) 2011 stats: .250, 16 HR, 44 RBI in 324 at-bats. Not a bad bench (platoon?) player, but why do I get the feeling that Rube has more up his sleeve this offseason?

Meanwhile, in Miami, the Marlins have offered Jose Reyes a six-year, $111 million deal.

  1. i dont get the hate on the moves we have improved are bench big time….thome gives you power wiggiton can play any postion and nix can still hit and all of them are good club house guys
    the last two years we lost to the cards and giants and mainly because slow white guys like ross and freeze had timley hits….

  2. jose reyes is a d-bag let him go to the miami marlins and dance around like a jerk off after all 7 of his home runs next year…..winter meetings didnt even start yet lets see how j-roll talks play out…so far i like what RAJ has done with the bench

  3. why not resign Raul instead? he almost certainly would have taken the same $$ per year on a one year deal and their 2011 stats are very similar (Raul actually had a lot more RBIs, but I’m afraid to say that anymore with the SABR-police lurking out there…)

  4. 2008 Team had Pat Burrell, Geoff Jenkins, and Matt Stairs…..All over 30, all white, all key postseason contributors

  5. Hey Douchebag! What’s with the “white guy” comment? You need to knock that off because if it’s not ok to say “black guy” it’s not ok to say “white guy.” If he sucks fine but why is it ok to point out that he’s white if he sucks? I understand it’s a lot more popular to hate on white people put please let’s keep the race card out of sports if we can.

  6. White, blue, blue or purple, this was hardly an awe-inspiring deal. And, yeah, I’d rather have Cuddyer too.

  7. What’s with the “white guy” comment? You need to knock that off because if it’s not ok to say “black guy” it’s not ok to say “white guy.”
    I think you meant to say honkey. White guy isn’t offensive to anyone except you paper mache skin

  9. Yes “white guy” isn’t offensive to me but just imagine if the phillies signed an african american and KYLE posted a headline that said “THE PHILS SIGNED ANOTHER 30 YR OLD BLACK GUY.” I’m sure that would go over just as easy as “white guy.”….. NOT!!!! At least he’d get to meet Al Sharpton. I like this blog and i just hope the race/politics/religion card stays out.

    Funny, that’s exactly what goes through me head when you try impostering me.
    Now go back to “fucking anyone”, since you’re no good at impostering me.

  11. (Pause the fight) I live in DC and go to Nationals games a few times a week- Lanyce was one of my favorite Nats to watch. He’s a great utility player- he’s versatile, and plays hard whenever he’s in the field. Also has a lot of pop in his bat. One thing I do have against him (completely unrelated to baseball)- he wears very ed hardy-ish clothes, ew. I got to serve him at my sports bar… He and Mike Morse told me they were dolphin trainers at Sea World.
