Tim, what would you have done with the Phillies? Just stay pat?
Stop fucking around with Dom Brown and promote him to the majors for good, hang onto Worley and May and see how they develop (May's future is in the bullpen, but a cost-controlled reliever with a world-class arm is a genuine asset), and not get fucking retarded and burn huge amounts of money / assets on Ben Revere and Michael Young. Young is 36 and likely to regress horribly in the near-term (his home / away splits are astounding) and the Phillies paid him money to get him to waive his no-trade clause
, in addition to sending over two more top prospects.
There is nothing about that deal which makes sense for Philadelphia.
