Comment on All Quiet on the Trade Front for the Phillies by ASK

In mid-June last year, Adams was less than half a season into his 2 year, $14M deal when he went on the DL. At the time, the Phils were 35-37. I see no reason to knock RAJ for not trading Adams before he got hurt. If you want to bash RAJ for the Adams signing, I won’t argue, but I can’t agree that there was any point at which it’s fair to criticize RAJ for not trading him.

Phils to hold workout for Cuban outfielder Castillo

It is no secret the Phillies are desperate for outfield help, so it is no surprise they are taking a closer look at Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo. MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez reports the Phillies will hold a private workout for Castillo on Tuesday. The Phillies were one of 28 teams that watched Castillo work out Saturday in Miami. Castillo, who is 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds, is known for his speed and considered a line-drive hitter with power.

Comment on All Quiet on the Trade Front for the Phillies by Ryan

Ruben signed these ridiculous contracts with easily attainable options for aging and injury-prone players, so he’s responsible for that as well. Time to clear them off the books even if it means paying option years or whatever to do so.
