Getting Wes Helms on the cheap

New, comment

Wes Helms won't cost the Marlins any money, at least not until the end of the season.

According to a source familiar with the transaction, the Philliesagreed to pick up Helms' entire 2008 salary. Helms won't cost the Marlins anything during the season, but they will have to pay him $750,000 this offseason to buy out a $3.75 million club option.

While I'm not jumping up and down about acquiring Helms, at least at this point, I've got to admit: the price is right.
