2006 Chachi #57 Jeff Conine

Mr. Marlin . . . Jeff came to the Phillies in a late August 2006 trade with the Baltimore Orioles for infield prospect Angel Chavez. He was a huge part of the 2006 stretch run that saw the Phillies fall just short of a Wild Card berth in the Postseason.

He played in 28 games for the Phils, hitting .280 with 17 RBI.

The arrival of Jayson Werth in December 2006 led to Jeff's trade to the Reds a few days later.

Almost as upsetting as the loss of Rheal.
