Kensington Strangler Responsible for 6 Attacks
It's possible that the so-called Kensington Strangler may be responsible for 6 murders. Another woman was attacked on Monday morning. Fortunately, she like another victim late-October was able to run away and give police a description of the perp. Her description of the attacker nearly matches the other sketch. If the Kensington Strangler isn't stopped soon, this could be Philadelphia's most notorious serial killer in quite some time.
Former Phillies GM Pat Gillick Voted Into Baseball Hall of Fame
Pat Gillick, the architect of the Toronto Blue Jays back-to-back World Series champion teams and the 2008 Philadelphia Phillies World Series team was voted into Baseball's Hall of Fame. Gillick will be forever remembered in Philadelphia for helping the Phillies tranform from a on-the-cusp playoff team into a champion. When was hired by the Phillies in November 2005 and within 3 years, there was a parade down Broad Street.
Phillies Said to be Interested in Jeff Francoeur
Rejoice Phillies fans, Ruben Amaro and the braintrust have just the solution for Jayson Werth's replacement. It's none other than Jeff Francoeur. You're probably snickering right now as you read this, but it's not out of the realm of possibility for a player of his ilk to have success in Citizen's Bank Park. At the time when Jayson Werth was brought into Philly, he was off the radar completely and was a player with potential who had suffered through some injuries. Francoeur used to be a very good player in Atlanta, twice knocking in 100 RBI and even hitting 30 homeruns in 2007. He may prove to be a solid replacement for Werth, but of course has to fufill his potential.
