Welcome (Back) to the Phillies, Placido Polanco. With a Grand Slam in the 7th against the Nationals in their Home Opener yesterday, the third-basemen secured his spot as a Phillie.
Although, he’s not exactly a new addition, like Doc Halladay. The Phillies traded Polanco to Detroit back in 2005, and this season he’s back–taking the place of Pedro Feliz.
The Phils went on to win their first game of the season 11-1 in Washington.
