Ex-Phils on the Move

2001 Topps Heritage #28 Randy Wolf
2006 Topps 52 #63 Fabio Castro

So far this offseason, a lot of former Phillies have been on the move:

Pedro Feliz (2008-2009) - Signed a 1-year deal with the Houston Astros.
Zach Segovia (2007) - Released by the Washington Nationals.
Randy Wolf (1999-2006) - Signed a 3-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Kevin Millwood (2003-2004) - Traded with cash to the Baltimore Orioles for pitcher Chris Ray.
Fabio Castro (2006-2007) - Signed with the Boston Red Sox.
Ryne Sandberg (1981) - Named manager of the Cubs' AAA team in Iowa.
Chris Coste (2006-2009) - Signed with the New York Mets.
Billy Wagner (2004-2005) - Signed with the Atlanta Braves.
Brad Mills (Bench coach, 1997-2000) - Named manager of the Houston Astros.
So Taguchi (2008) - Released by the Chicago Cubs.

And of course, the Phillies brought back a former Phillie with the signing of Placido Polanco.

I have a bad feeling Billy Wagner and Chris Coste will somehow haunt the Phils this year. I'm happy with Polanco over Pedro Feliz at third base, but I'm sure Pedro will make a game-saving, dazzling defensive play against the Phils when the Astros come to town. Best of luck to all the Ex-Phillies in their new homes, except when you're playing the Phillies. Then I hope things go poorly.
