Philly GM at the Helms: Another Slow News Day Speculation

Paul Hagen of Philadelphia Daily News expands on his article yesterday, regarding Phillies GM Pat Gillick's apparent desire to move either Wes Helms or Greg Dobbs following the signing of third baseman Pedro Feliz. It now looks to be Helms who may be sent packing. The article even goes as far to name teams either already interested in Helms or teams he'd be a good fit for. The teams mentioned are: Marlins, Rays, Twins, Giants, A's. If Joe Crede is indeed shipped to the Giants, I could see the White Sox bringing Helms in at a backup and pinch hitting role.

It's debatable to what extent the name Wes Helms belongs on this Web site. I feel I'm nearing my quota, but he's a player I've personally never stopped following (based mostly on disdain for) after he left Milwaukee. He did lead the Brewers in homeruns not to long ago with a respectable 23. An added bonus, he sort of resembles a flabby Val Kilmer, as you can see in the included picture of... a flabby Val Kilmer. But hey, maybe that's just my take.

too bad you had to find the obviously photoshopped pic of val that has been used by less reliable tabloid types to make your point.

Ha, now that you mention it, that pic does look pretty altered.

Regardless of the pic's validity, I consider Wes Helms to look like a slightly larger version of the Val Kilmer we all know and love from sweet flicks like Willow.

I new that wasn't Val, but it was ne of the few Batman Fatman jokes, you should be a shame of yourself for allowing people to believe that you were Val Kilmer, you can't dust his boots.
