Carlos Ruiz Deal Is Not As Bad As You Think

If you thought the Phillies were nuts for re-signing catcher Carlos Ruiz for three years and $26 million, I would disagree. At first I thought it was a bad deal too, but the more I thought about it, the more I warmed up to it. Ruiz, who turns 35 in January, has spent his entire career […]
