Jon Heyman confirms it. The Phillies just traded for Hunter Pence. They will send Jarred Cosart, Jonathan Singleton, Josh Zeid, and one other player (not Domonic Brown or Vance Worley) to Houston in exchange for Pence. Apparently, Ed Wade flinched: he also sent the Phillies money. No, really, he did. According to multiple reports, it will allow the Phillies to stay under the luxury tax.
What a Friday, folks. That sound you hear is Ruben Amaro and Howie Roseman pouring champagne on each other in gleeful – yet somewhat disturbing – euphoria.
We'll have more when the other player is announced. For now, go celebrate.
We're accepting any and all Photoshops of Amaro and Roseman in ridiculous scenarios (include Holmgren too, if you want). Send to crossingbroad [at] yahoo [dot] com.
Apparently, ESPN couldn't handle Philly:
