    Philadelphia trade idea!

    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
    William Bergolla

    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.

    I wasn't a fan of signing Lidle the first time around.

    I'm even less of a fan of bringing him back.

    No to Lidle, but I would deal LaRue and Bergolla for Myers

    Taken from the Delaware Times:

    Catcher Mike Lieberthal was back in the Philliesí clubhouse, having spent a week in Clearwater, Fla., during which he didnít play any rehabilitation games.

    Lieberthal had continued discomfort in his strained left hip that kept him sidelined when he was supposed to be playing for the Class A Threshers. According to Lieberthal, the pain when he runs the bases has eased and he gauges himself at "85 percent."

    "I ran Sunday, and I felt better than I did (June 27)," Lieberthal said. "Iím hoping to play for (Triple-A) Scranton or (Double-A) Reading this weekend and be back for San Francisco (the Philliesí first series after the All-Star break)."

    If Lieberthal does return and plays pain-free in the second half of July, thereís a chance he could find his name among the trade rumors. He is in the final year of his contract, and there are contending teams (the Rockies and Reds, to name two) who might want to give Lieberthal a try if the Phillies are willing to pick up a healthy percentage of the $3.75 million he has remaining on his contract for the second half of the season.

    "Itís important for me to come back, be healthy and show that I can catch everyday," Lieberthal said. "I obviously want to do well. Iím determined to come back and show how I can play, and that will determine how valuable I can be to another team."


    Could the Reds swap LaRue for Lieberthal, knowing that Liberthal would just be a rental but at the same time it allows them to get out of LaRue's contract for 2007?

    Just say no to Cory Lidle.

    Meanwhile, would the Phillies take Milton in return for some water ice and cheesesteaks?

    Don't knock it til ya try it!

    and for some Geno's, I'd take whatever the Phillies were offering.

    Living in this city, I get more than my fair share of exposure to the Broad Street Babies (I mean Bombers), and while I have nothing to back it up aside from watching a couple of their games, I have some manlove for Shane Victorino. Think Denorfia, as a switch hitter. Victorino definitely wouldn't start for us unless somehow we superglued Adam Dunn to 1B, but I would love to see him as a 4th OF type.

    If there is anyway we could get the largely shopped Brett Myers and Shane Victorino in the same deal without blowing our load to the Phillies, then I would definitely do it. I'd also love to see if we could get a crack at Ryan Madson, but I would think due to his age, the Phils would want nothing to do with sending him to us.

    Sal Fasano just went to the DL, and the only catcher they have on the roster is non other than you guessed it, Carlos Ruiz.

    With a .171/.205/.244 line, the Phils can't afford to wait for Lieberthal to come back after the ASB. If Wayne's not on the phone to the City of Needing Catching Love, then he's failing us as fans.

    Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this
