Gotta say that if the Phils can land a Cy Young pitcher without giving up Drabek, Happ, Brown, Taylor, or Knapp, then that’s a steal, in my book. If they only have to give up Donald (not going to be very good and behind Rollins), Marson (probably going to be a decent ML’er), and Carrasco (who has flat-out stunk at AAA this year), then I love it. In fact, I say F Halladay, or more appropriately, F RICCIARDI, have fun losing for the next decade, hoser.
UPDATE: Done deal. Jason Knapp, Carlos Carrasco, Jason Donald, and Lou Marson FOR Cliff Lee and right-handed OF Ben Francisco. Fantastic deal! Nice work, Ruben
