The Phillies are all but done in there pursuit of catching the Mets, and their catching situation is in shambles, so why not make a solid trade that benefits both teams?
I propose this deal:
Reds trade: Jason Larue
Phillies trade: Cory Lidle
Lidle moves into the 5th spot and allows us to move Claussen into the pen to shore up the middle innings, thus improving the rotation as well as the BP.
