So we arwe a week away from D-Day, and with all the swirling rumors out there, I thought it might be interesting to have one dedicated thread to all the rumors, innuendo, etc... along with a neat poll that might capture exactly who the majority is hoping for. (If anyone).
This might also help with tangental trade talk in other threads, but that would be too easy, right?
Feel free to comment accordingly, link what you like, and voice your opinion. Since the majority of the focus seems to be surrounding three names, (Beltran, Pence, Upton) I created a poll based on them.
Personally, I can't wait until Monday, when all the nonsense is over with, and we can get back to enjoying this special season for what it is.
Which Outfielder would you prefer to see the Phillies Trade for
Carlos Beltran: Hire the Gun and aim straight (6 votes)
Hunter Pence: Screw BABIP and THE FUTURE: I want it all now! (11 votes)
B.J. Upton: Strikeouts be damned, a change of scenery will do him, and us GOOD! (7 votes)
A Cheaper alternative: We need to improve, but not at the cost of the future (24 votes)
Are you nuts? We've got the best record in Baseball. We don't need no stinkin outfielder! (21 votes)
