Orioles acquired DH Jim Thome from the Phillies for RHP Kyle Simon and C Gabriel Lino.


Phillies fire sale starting?

Smart move. Those didn't have a place to play and was basically a DH.

Too early to say. It very likely has more to do with Howard's eventual return and the opinion of the Phillies' brass that Wigginton, Luna and, every so often, Mayberry can cover 1B than anything else.

In other words--I wouldn't salivate over the prospect of acquiring Victorino just yet.

Yea I think it is because of Howard due to be back soon. Thome was just a fill in until that was to happen. However I would like to have Victorino:)

Great move by the Phillies to give Thome the respect. He can still flat out hit.
