  1. The clicks are coming, the clicks are coming.

    I know we have been calling for a trade for a while. Now that it is done we can reflect back on Hamels career and thank him for all he has done on and off the field. Seems like someone in the Phillies clubhouse, definitely cannot be amaro, pulled off a great deal to bring in some top prospects.

  2. *YAWN*

    But what does Chip Kelly have to do with any of this? Exactly. August 1st. We ride with Herremans in the mystery mobile with some underage Delco trash while the Walrus declares the time is yours.

  3. I feel like eating out a strong black mans asshole while stroking his moosec0ck from behind praying that he had Mexican tonight so I have a chance at receiving a Dizzy Gillespie

  4. I just got an offer to star as the midsection of Human Centipede 4 with Barrett Brooks and Rob Ellis!

    Hollywood here I come!

  5. Way to go Ruben you jerkoff. You traded our best player for a bunch of minor leaguers. Better hope Utley comes back soon or this team is doomed.

    1. It’s possible the Phillies will now swap prospects for Clayton Kershaw to fill Cole’s spot in the rotation, but it’s unlikely.

        1. oddly enough, Stephen Drew is hitting .188 and has 13 homers while playing a great 2nd base compared to Chase who boots 3 balls a week

    2. Everything you said is beyond comprehension, I’ll assume you are just being utterly and completely sarcastic and have myself a good ol’ chuckle.

  6. That the only thing remaining to complete the deal is a side of mushroom sauce.

  7. Count me as unimpressed. Had to get gallo or mazara – top prospects. Not 2nd tier guys.

    Alfaro strikes out a ton and sucks defensively. He won’t get to the Phillies until he’s 25 anyway. Only guy that seems like he has true potential is Nick Williams.

  8. WHY WHY WHY WOULD THEY TRADE COLE JUST WHEN THE TEAM IS POISED TO MAKE ITS PLAYOFF RUN. I COULD ALREADY SEE COLE STANDING ON THE MOUND AT CBP IN GAME 1 OF THE NLCS. THIS TRADE IS ATROCIOUS. THEY SHOULD’VE AT LEAST GOTTEN PRINCE FIELDER, IAN KINSLER AND CLAYTON KERSHAW FROM THE RANGERS IN THIS DEAL. MY MAN CHIP KELLY WOULDVE MADE THAT TRADE HAPPEN. MAYOR RENDELL SHOULD MAKE A LAW THAT CHIP KELLY HAS TO RUN ALL 4 TEAMS IN THIS CITY
