In Other News

Don't pop the champagne just yet. The Daily News reported Saturday that the Phillies won't demolish Veterans Stadium until the spring, not in February, as had been planned, for "reasons which they will discuss early [this] week." My guess is that there are so many people who want to push the button, they need more time to determine who will get the honors.

In player news, the Phils resigned solid bench guy Ricky Ledee and spot starter Amaury Telemaco to one-year contracts, made arbitration offers to starter Vicente Padilla, infielder Placido Polanco, and shortstop Jimmy Rollins, and cut loose reliever Valerio De Los Santos, who had a late-season cup of coffee with the team after being traded from the Brewers.
