You're right, I don't know why the Phils didn't hold out waiting for the Angels to offer Trout for Thome. How could they be so stupid?!?!?!

I'm happy we got two warm bodies and I'm happy Jimmy Thome has a starting opportunity.

Win-win in my opinion.

Next up, trade Colbert for Mike Olt.

Oct. 28, 2012. Game 7 of the World Series. Phillies vs. Orioles.

Phillies leading 4-2 in the bottom of the 9th inning.

Oriole's have 2 guys on base, 2 outs.

Coming to the plate for the Orioles - Jim Thome.......

NEPP- I hope the Phils get more than just Olt for Cole...if the Rangers have decided to start fishing for Aces.

I would say Olt and then 2 other lesser pieces...

And as soon as I got that offer from them, I'd call up Cashman and see if he'd match/exceed it.

The Yankees must be desperate for a SP right now.

What do the Yanks have outside of Banuelos? I honestly don't know...and it seems like they are lacking in position prospects.

Chris in VT: Do not mistake my overwhelming lack of excitement over Simon as disapproval of the trade. There was no point in keeping Thome, & dumping his salary was return enough so far as I'm concerned. I merely pointed out that the Phillies appear to have a hard on for a certain type of pitcher, & that type of pitcher is liable to fail as his predecessors have failed.

I think their system is pretty thin.

Olt would be far above any of their prospects.

Texas would be the team to deal with.

Well, Glenn, now I can bet on the NL to win the AS game.

Cut payroll? I'm shure the million thome was due really broke the bank

Now get rid of this Utley guy and I'll be back out on the field for you Phillies fans!
