Good-Bye, God's Speed and Fare-Thee-Well

(Sigh),...another sports "good guy" leaves town:

The Phillies activated outfielder Raul Ibanez from the 15-day disabled list on Friday, designating catcher Chris Coste for assignment in order to make room on the 25-man roster.

Coste was then claimed off waivers by the Astros.

Before landing on the DL with a groin injury, Ibanez was scorching at the plate, batting .312 with 22 home runs and 59 RBIs in 62 games. The 37-year-old left fielder has not played since June 17.

Ibanez, slated to start in the All-Star Game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on July 14, is sure to give a boost to a team that already leads the National League in runs scored with 444.

Throughout his 14-year career, Ibanez sports a .287 batting average and 204 home runs.
