Polanco to Phils = 1 Less Figgins Suitor

The dominoes may start falling a little faster now with today's free agent news.

Former Detroit Tigers infielder Placido Polanco has signed with the Phillies for 3 years, $18 Million. It has been announced that he will be playing 3B for Philadelphia (replacing Pedro Feliz), meaning that Chone Figgins has one less high profile, big payroll team to bid up the price of his services.

The faithful in Anaheim who worship Figgy Stardust have a reason to celebrate - the bidding for Desmond DeChone just got more affordable for Arte Moreno and his Angels.

For you National League fans, this just makes the Phillies that much better. Wow.
