He will be missed.

Jon Morosi from FOX Sports is reporting that Juan Pierre has cleared waivers.

Why is midnight tonight relevant? Pierre will be able to play in the postseason if he's traded by then. Because he's useful to a potential contender, there's a decent chance he'll be dealt.

Pierre, 35, is batting .300 for the Phillies with 32 stolen bases and 22 RBI, but's his .343 on-base percentage that likely makes him attractive to other teams.

Stay tuned.

    Something decent in return? I liked the Pierre signing from day one because of its low risk/high reward potential, but we aren’t getting anything but a fringe prospect or two (if that). Otherwise, someone would have picked him up when he was waived.

    Lawn jockey will be missed, maybe he signs back here next year.

    Noooo! WHYY????

    how did he clear? not a lot left on salary for the year. surprised someone didn’t put in a claim on him to either 1) get him, or 2) prevent another contender from getting him.

    This is a baseless article.
    Yes, he cleared waivers, but haven’t we already been down this road before. Most players are put on waivers after the deadline. It doesn’t mean that they’ll be traded.
    Now we have this mook, Ryan, saying, “he will be missed.” No, he MIGHT be missed, if they even trade the fucking guy!
    Bring Kyle back. This blog is turning into horseshit.

    This an absolute no brainer here people. Lol this fucking site…

    These are the worst comments that I have ever read on this site and that is saying a lot. There are people who are upset about the potential of trading a platoon outfielder with one month left on his contract? Are you insane. Newsflash – the Phillies are not making the postseason. Any prospect they get in return for Pierre is simply icing on the cake. He will nto be here next year. too old and will demand too much money after how he played this season. Seriously, get a clue.

    Joe Rodgers you are a clown, yes let’s trade our 24 year old player instead of our 35 year old one…moron
    I like Juan, it’d be sad to see him go but we have no shot might as well get something for him since we don’t need him and if need be try to scoop him up in the off season
    You people make me laugh, you bitch and moan about Kyle’s articles now you bitch and moan about wanting him back

  • Andy (San Diego) August 31, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    Good news. This is a win-win.
    It means that we will be seeing a lot of Darin Ruf in LF the last month of this season. We are about to find out if we found a diamond in the rough.
    The second coming of the Bull?

    Not exactly an earth shattering story. Juan Pierre was a nice player who, in my mind, overachieved, given his age, but his subtraction (if and when that happens) won’t have an adverse effect on the Phils. In other words, they’ve sucked with him, they can suck without him.

  • Christian Stengal August 31, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    The is joke.. F RAJ,

  • Bitch betta have mah honey August 31, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Why isn’t Kyle posting anymore? Did I miss something?

  • Frank August 31, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    I have had season tics for 42 years. 42!!! Now I’m supposed to pay to watch this mess? Michael Martinez? Are you kidding me? He’ a little leaguer. Juan Pierre knows the game, hits for average, has speed, plays good defense, and is smart. So let’s trade him for another nobody because we’re out of the race. What about the people who paid good money for tickets to watch BASEBALL for the rest of this year? We got a nobody for him. It’s beginning to look as if Amaro is a fraud.

  • Mike August 31, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    “What about people who paid good money for tickets to watch BASEBALL”
    I maybe wrong Frank, but I THINK there still will be baseball games to watch at CBP if Juan Pierre is sent packing tonight…I could be wrong though

    Baba booey

  • Jon Taffer August 31, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    I tried to make Juan Pierre my main guy, and I failed. Its my job to fix it!

  • boom September 1, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    wow this site…. juan pierre has a noodle arm, cannot steal a bag to save his life, and his .300 batting average is the lightest .300 ive ever seen.
    get this dude out of here, we’re already have 3 backup outfielders with schierholtz, mayberry, and nix…. we need to get outfielders that actually are starter quality.

  • Jason September 2, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    your a fucking idiot.
    Love XOXOXO Philly

  • Tits McGhee September 3, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Solid reporting. Can’t believe that he got traded 3 days ago and Charlie still has him in the lineup. Write something decent for once…please.

  • boom September 4, 2012 at 11:15 am

    it’s juan pierre. beat it.
