Rube strikes again.

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:

  1. Eagles were not gonna one up Ruben tonight. He saw that signing, got on the Phone with Wade and cut him with his cold, hard silence.

    Mayor nutter is working on a deal sending Joey vento to SD for mike adams and 2 million fish tacos. Word is Bon Jovi.

  18. “and two other players”
    I’m keepin my load in until we know who they are; I wonder why they’re not being named… Hopefully they’re in the minors/prospects.
    PS: Kristen Lee > Krystal (Howard) > Pence’s GF

  19. I just jerked off to this day

  20. those two others are minor prospects from what i have heard

  21. One of them is Josh Zeid

  22. OK yeah I saw other articles where they’re all prospects.

    You’re such a geek. (And still a Major Prig Hole for all your grammer gripings)

  23. Somewhere Holmgren is calling Carter and Richards from a bathroom on dry island asking for directions to sea isle.

    In the vein of Doc’s Patients and, I figured we should have a squad known as Hunter’s Gatherers.

  25. Loved Mitch Williams comments on MLB Network: “When Hunter Pence is walkin’, it looks like he’s hustlin’.” Friggin’ brilliant.

    I love J. Happ grabbing at Pence and probably asking “Can I go too?”

  27. Not worth the price. Not this year. Not by a long shot.

  28. best day ever <3333333333333333

  29. All your base are belong to us.

    Well, damn! Amaro does it again! Landed Pence without giving up Brown or Worley! Ruben is both brilliant, AND a major league thief! WHOO!!

    For a “proffeshunall writer”, that’s pure brillyance. Your such a Moronic Pus Head.

  32. I’m really enjoying the skill involved with playing futbol at a high level. Perhaps only in baseball will you see such advanced skills on display (I’d argue basketball, football, and hockey are more athleticism based, relatively speaking). Maybe this is because I’m a newbie… but I was really impressed with the inhuman coordination I saw in the Real Madrid match last night, and I look forward to seeing them play on Saturday.
