I’m not going to make a habit of linking the content on my other site here on this site. But I wanted to write a piece that addresses the ridiculous arguments I’ve seen intimated here and elsewhere that this trade, or any of our past trades, is somehow going to cause the Phillies to become less competitive over the next 5 to 10 years. You can find the piece right here. I stated just about everything I had to say in that post, but if you have specific comments or feedback, I’ll answer it in the comments either here or there. Enjoy.
