Sandberg waits for the call to the majors
This kid has a real shot to be a special player, hope the Phillies can see that.

Minor League home run champ Ruf to be called up
This will be interesting, if nothing else.

Thunder finish off Reading
A fine run.

Big bat should top Phillies off-season wish list

And while it is difficult to project exact possibilities for trades, here is one to look at: calling the Rangers about Adrian Beltre.

That sounds strange, but hear us out. If Texas falls short in the playoffs, it may benefit Ruben Amaro Jr. to give a call to Jon Daniels and dangle Cliff Lee as a possible trade target.

Pretty sure I wanted the Phillies to sign him instead of Placido Polanco a couple years back.

Chooch goes 2-for-2 with an RBI in DL return
