If it was common knowledge that the Phillies were willing to trade a 24 year-old outfield with a great glove, blazing speed and a major-league ready bat for a reliever with psychological problems and no intestinal fortitude, Brian Cashman should've been attached at the hip to Phillies' GM Pat Gillick.
If you missed the news
, the Astros traded Brad Lidge to the Phils for Bourn, some garbage was thrown in on both sides to make up the 5-player deal, but Lidge and Bourn were the main components.
Here's my question to you, Brian Cashman: How does this deal not get done for Kyle Farnsworth? You should be ashamed of yourself.
By the way, I guarantee this move sends at least two dozen Phillies fans into cardiac arrest when Lidge gives up long balls this season.
Get used to this sight, Phillies fans.
