Phillies Player Review: Josh Lindblom

Josh Lindblom has limited righties to a .191 batting average in two seasons. The Phillies’ bullpen was a disaster in 2012, placing 21st in ERA (3.94) and 29th in eighth-inning ERA (4.89). The ‘pen blew 19 saves — 11 more than their 2011 total. And it lost 27 games after losing just 18 in 2011. So it made sense that when the Phillies were set to unload Shane Victorino and Hunter...

Dodgers close to sending Lindblom and another to Philly for Victorino

Ugh. Best lede ever, right? Well, this is far from the best trade ever. I'm not upset the Dodgers are close to sending reliever Josh Lindblom and an unknown second player to the Phillies for Shane Victorino. I don't have time for instant analysis, but I'm not especially in favor of this deal. Victorino is a marginal upgrade at best and the Dodgers still need a big...
