MLB: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

Wasn’t it just last year that the Phillies were in Pittsburgh, making deals ahead of the trade deadline to bolster their team?

I remember being out on a lake, kayaking away when news broke about Spencer Howard being included in a deal that “only” got them Kyle Gibson and Ian Kennedy. The response was visceral to say the least. Pretty sure the Phillies won that deal. That’s why I still have faith in Dave Dombrowski/Sam Fuld when it comes to choosing which player(s) to deal.

On to the links.
