Jakes on them if they're giving up Brown, which they most likely will be.

nope


RT @Ken_Rosenthal: Astros will get Singleton, Cosart and 2 players to be named from #Phillies for Pence. PTBN not major prospects

Deal is centered around Cosart and Singleton.

One hell of a haul for the Astros.

I'm more upset about Cosart.

Singleton is a great hitter but is blocked by Howard. Cosart was very promising.

Astros management is garbage. BRB trading away all our players for trash!

After hosing the Astros for years in trades, Ed Wade is finally getting the last laugh.

what? Astros aren't gonna compete in 2012/13 so why drop $25mil on Pence? they got a pretty good deal.

All this trading is gonna come back to bite the Phillies hard. They're playing for now by trading their entire farm system and ignoring the fact that almost their whole roster is either aging or declining.

The only thing they have going for their future is its becoming a very desirable place for free agents to sign. I'm pretty upset about trading all of our prospects away.

yea they are going all out for 2011/2012. gonna lose some key players after that and the farm is kind of gutted.

Only negative I see from this is that Brown is gonna lose PT to Ibanez

I am not sold on the Astros, I don't think they will compete or be a contender for a long time. Coming from a Astros fan's perspective...
I like Wandy and Brett Meyers as pitchers, and I think bourn gives awesome effort and hustle! Pence is a solid player too, not 25 mil though.

good for Pence, watched him mature as a player in AA-corpus. Plays the game hard and with passion, gonna miss him. He just got called of the field in the 5th and was choked up shaking all his teammates hands in the dugout.
