    Re: Lidle traded

    Looks like Wilson's got some decent numbers and is a lefty. Moran doesn't have awful numbers but they aren't all world either but he seems to have some speed. Nine triples and 41 stolen bases speak for themselves. Cory Lidle had bad numbers and wasn't going to be here next year. Going from some numbers and outlooks that I've seen, maybe this isn't such a bad trade after all.

    Re: Lidle traded

    Neither Wilson nor Moran were top prospects. Moran is just a decent hitter with good speed, but the Phils already have a couple of them who they like a lot better (Bourn and Golson). Wilson could end up being a decent 4th or 5th starter, or a long man out of the pen. Neither one of these guys were considered to be part of the Phillies' plans in future years. I thought the Reds would have gotten some players closer to being major league ready than these two. I figured the Reds could have gotten someone like Keith Bucktrot or Seung Lee.

    Cory Lidle fills innings. He's a #4 at best, probably a #5 in a good rotation.

    And he was going to be gone.

    We'll see about this Wilson kid, but it sounds like he has a fair amount of upside. And he's a lefty.

    Good job OB.

    Re: Lidle traded

    Here is a direct quote from BA's Prospect Handbook concerning Moran:

    Moran's build and hitting style remind some of Pokey Reese.
    Here is another one:

    He's (Moran) close to an 80 runner on the 20-80 scouting scale ...

    This could end up somewhat like the Walker trade where the most interesting player may be named 'Later'.

    Acevedo's tenure in the pen certainly was short.

    Who comes up from the Bats to start on Saturday?

    I'm thinking Seth Etherton, if the rotation days work out right. Or maybe Matt Belisle, not that his recent performance has earned it.

    Maybe Luke Hudson will get a shot, and after that he may go to the pen

    I wonder where that leaves Acevedo? Still in the pen or back in the rotation?

    Doubt it. The trade said that we got J.Wilson, Moran, and a PTBNL OR cash considerations. I wouldn't be looking for a PTBNL if I were you.

    Re: Lidle traded

    Why would anyone expect top prospects? This was a very fine trade. I wouldn't think we'd gotten this much. Good job DanO. And thank you for getting Lidle out of here. Hancock, show us whatchoo' got.
