Go get him, Philadelphia. He's guaranteed to let you down in 20 games or less!
As the Phillies search for bench players to fill in their team, they've turned to Nomar Garciaparra and Moises Alou as possible options, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
For some mysterious reason, Alou still thinks he can play baseball on an everyday basis and wants a lot of playing time. I highly doubt any NL team is stupid enough to promise him more than pinch-hitting and a handful of games in the field. American League is a different story, and I think if he's primarily the designated hitter, he may be able to stay healthy, for at least half a season.
Go ahead, Philly. Spend a couple million on him. You'll enjoy him while he lasts, I think.
