Feliz finally a Phillie

After almost a week of waiting, former Shreveport Captain Pedro Feliz is a member of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Feliz officially was introduced as Philadelphia's new third baseman Thursday and it should be fun to watch him play in a hitters' park for the first time in his career.

Renowned for his glove and his arm, which is the source of one of the funnier comments ever made by a Captain, Feliz should give the Phillies the right-handed power bat they need to replace Aaron Rowand.

And, with Feliz free from Barry Bonds' massive shadow, he should respond offensively, especially with the thumpers up and down Philly's loaded lineup.

So after several months of waiting and wrangling, Pedro Feliz finally has a new home -- and it's one that should suit him to a T.
