Geoff Jenkins will start getting booed soon

Jinxie  is finalizing a two-year deal with the Phillies.

It's $13MM for two years, with an option for 2010 that kicks in at a certain number of plate appearances.  This is a decent deal for all sides--Jenks gets the multiple years he was looking for, and $6.5MM per year is probably about what he is worth.

And hey, if he takes advantage of the bandbox that is Citizen's Bank Park, he might just score another multi-year deal when this is over.

Good luck, Geoff--may you occasionally hit home runs off of Matt Wise, but never off of Guillermo Mota.
