Was Mike Adams the most important acquisition of the Philadelphia Phillies for 2013?  Was it Michael Young, Ben Revere or a piece that will be added later?   TAL’S HANDY CAPS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS:  My articles are designed to represent a baseball man’s thinking, the view from the dugout and the GM’s box.
