Well, the official hot stove has been lit. We’ve had a trade made, and not just any trade. A MAJOR trade with some implications for the Phillies as well. On to the links!

Other Phillies news:

MLB esoterica:

  • Speaking of that, the Yankees got one of the pitchers we kind of all expected them to get, trading for James Paxton yesterday. I’ve seen it mentioned that the Phillies would have had to give up Medina + something better than Thompson-Williams for Paxton. For me, that’s an easy “no”.
  • As I mentioned before, the Hall of Fame ballot was released yesterday. Newcomers are pitchers Mariano Rivera (a lock), Halladay and Andy Pettitte, infielders Todd Helton, Michael Young, Miguel Tejada and Placido Polanco, and outfielder Juan Pierre. Is this the year Bonds and Clemens get in, something that is waaaaaaaaaaaay overdue? Maybe!

Until next time...
