    Re: Todd Jones traded

    Must've been handing out all that bubblegum during the rain delay in Philly. Charmed them . I'm gonna miss Jones, he seemed like a good guy not to mention a good reliever.

    o/t, Random fact= Hancock's birthday is the same as mine and Larkin's daughter, Brielle.

    OK, someone give me a reason to like this deal. Anyone, anyone?

    The Phillies got Hancock from Boston for Jeremy Giambi. No, he isn't very good, but Ed Wade and Larry Bowa hate using young players. They always bring in old guys and say they provide "veteran leadership," which is why Abbott started ahead of Hancock. Plus, in Hancock's one start, he was awful. That was enough for Bowa never to use him again.

    the ONLY thing impressive about Machado is 50 BBs in 292 ABs.

    A guy worth basically zero for a possible rotation-filler and a 23-year-old shortstop with speed, glove, and plate discipline but no bat (yet)?

    Actually, I like it just fine. Those two players are much more than I thought Jones would bring by himself.

    Re: Todd Jones traded

    Well with his speed that's a real good thing. But yeah, hitting .230 even with the walks isn't getting on base enough. Now if he could push that up to .260/.270 with his apparent patience we might have a good one. Considering that he's supposedly a great fielder.

    Todd Jones doesn't exactly have a ton of value.

    Re: Todd Jones traded

    So if we have a Machado, a Castro, an Olmedo and a Lopez do we have the entire franklin mint futility infielder collection?

    Re: Todd Jones traded

    Perhaps the most pointless trade for trading sake I can recall. Neither player has even the remotest chance of being even the fringiest of major league performers. It would have been much smarter to hold on to Jones to save some of the wear on arms like Wagner's.

    Hopefully we can bring Todd back next year, Super Barry. I think he is a good guy to have on the club. He was pretty solid for us this season.

    I agree with Scott, it is more than I thought we would get for Jones.

    I'd have rather just kept Jones.
