Another off day for the team, but big news, Phils Acquire Blanton for Cardenas, Outman, and Spencer.
Most people hate the trade. Blanton won't add much, it's thought, and Cardenas is looked at as possibly being the next Ryne Sandberg.* Too big a price to pay?
At least one poster was thinking postseason after the trade.
*Spoiler: He would go on to play for the Cubs, just like Sandberg. However, it was a few cups of coffee in one season and he .183. Outman would pitch for parts of 6 seasons before giving up in 2017. Spencer never made the bigs.
