A Haphazard Estimate re Victorino, Dodger Left Fielder

As both managing editor Dave Cameron and large swaths of the internet have noted, outfielder Shane Victorino has been traded by the Phillies to the Dodgers.

Five memories of Shane Victorino's time in Philly

Shane Victorino was a player to move, but will not be kicked out in shame. The Phillies traded Shane Victorino yesterday to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for right-handed reliever Josh Lindblom and Double A catcher Ethan Martin as well as a player to be named or cash. The deadline day deal seems like a pretty decent move for the Phillies, who I did not expect to re-sign...

For the Second Trading Deadline, Shane Victorino Replaces Bobby Abreu as Dodgers Part Ways With Outfielder

It is 2006 all over again.   At the trading deadline in 2006, the Phillies sent outfielder Bobby Abreu and pitcher Cory Lidle to the New York Yankees for no one that ever made a difference in Philadelphia.  The move was made so that Shane Victorino could join the starting lineup, where he would go on to win three gold gloves and make two All-Star games. Today, the Los Angeles...

What did Phillies get back in Victorino and Pence deals?

What a difference a year makes.  On this date one year ago the Phillies brought in Hunter Pence in a hugely popular trade - remember the cameras following his arrival in that black SUV?  It bolstered a team who was 29 games above .500 and held a 6 game lead in the NL East on their way to 102 victories. Exactly one year later, the 12 games under .500 last place...

The 2012 Phillies have brought us plenty of excitement this year, mostly in the form of guest accordion appearances on the television broadcasts.  Unfortunately, the excitement has not come from the team on the field, and now it is time to sell.

Biertempfel: Pirates Unwilling to Part with Top Prospects

Rob Biertempfel reports: The Pirates are reluctant to part with rookie outfielder Starling Marte or top right-handed pitching prospects Jameson Taillon and Gerrit Cole, which takes them out of the running for outfielder such as Hunter Pence, Shane Victorino and Shin-Soo Choo. I think the Pirates are definitely being smart in not giving up any of these three guys for the people mentioned...

Pregame: Lee vs. Strasburg Closes Out Big Trade Day

A busy day in a dreadful Phillies season finds them shipping Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence out of town. Both moves were very necessary and look for more in the next month as the waiver trade deadline approaches. My brief editorial is the return for Victorino and Pence is worthy of them. I was among the few that felt the haul to land Pence in the first place was ridiculous and...
