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:

    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.

    “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

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

    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?”

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

    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.
