Ex-Phils on the Move II

2010 Chachi Ex-Phillies #X9 Eric Bruntlett

Since early December, the following former Phillies have found new homes. Most of these transactions involve the players signing minor league contracts with invitations to Spring Training:

Marlon Byrd (2002-2005) - Signed with the Chicago Cubs.
Eric Bruntlett (2008-2009) - Signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals.
Jack Taschner (2009) - Signed a minor league deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Rodrigo Lopez (2009) - Signed a minor league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Carlos Silva (2002-2003) - Traded to the Chicago Cubs from the Seattle Mariners for Milton Bradley.
Joe Thurston (2006) - Signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves.
Geoff Geary (2003-2007) - Signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers.
R.J. Swindle (2008) - Signed a minor league deal with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Francisco Rosario (2007) - Signed a minor league deal with the Kansas City Royals.
Mike Cervenak (2008) - Signed a minor league deal with the New York Mets.
T.J. Bohn (2008) - Signed a minor league deal with the Chicago White Sox.

On the heals of the Houston Astros' signing of Pedro Feliz, Eric Bruntlett's departure represents the second player from the 2008 World Championship team to leave Philadelphia so far this offseason.

Eric Bruntlett and the Washington Nationals - Perfect together!

How painful will it be when E Brunt has a clutch game winning hit against the Phils?

(I'm trying the reverse black cat here.)
