I don’t understand why the Phillies just didn’t trade for Giambi at the deadline. I know he was on the DL but he could have just rehabbed in the minors and gotten his at bats that way. Would have been a great addition.

I mean maybe they just couldn’t reach an agreement but from what people were saying… before Giambi went on the DL him to Philly was pretty much a done deal.

You can’t trade a player on the DL.

Yes you can. Jake Peavy..? Jordan Schafer?

In MLB: The Show you can’t. You can in real life.

I’d love to see Cuddyer out in RF. Smith could be moved to acquire a decent SP. I don’t want David Wright unless he would be extended or at the very least excercise his option for 2013. The Rockies have plenty of options, and can still circle back to Wandy Rodriguez as well. They’ll have a ton of new pieces next year if they can actually follow through with the recent rumors.

Fowler has a 900 OPS since adding a leg kick in mid july, hopefully this spells the end of his trips to AAA. Stewart needs to get a change of scenery, that 2003 draft is a crazy mix of disappointments Ian Stewart #4 prospect in MLB pre-2005, Brandon Wood #3 prospect pre-2006, Aaron Hill peaked at #64 but after hitting .290 with 66 XBH as a 25YO his future looked bright, Delmon Young #1 Prospect in MLB pre-2006, Lastings Milledge, Conor Jackson, Daric Barton, Matt Murton even success stories like Saltalamachia, Adam Jones, Chad Cordero, Markakis, Quentin have either fallen off or had long stretches of disappointing production.

think of it this way. one who fractures his elbow is out at least a year. a neck fracture is much more severe than an elbow fracture, so you’d have to think he will miss the entire 2012 season and further.

The thought he would be back next week, but there were some complications… Like the fact that he BROKE HIS FREAKIN NECK!!! You act like it was a normal injury… Smh…

Ibanez is a terrible pinch hitter though. I’ve wondered if that’s why… but Ibanez was hot around the deadline.

I don’t blame him for wanting to stay in Colorado but I remember hearing the Phillies/Rockies were close to getting a deal done but Giambi going to the DL put a snag on it.
