The article presents information related to the baseball team Philadelphia Phillies. The trade of Jim Thome for Aaron Rowand and two pitching prospects was outstanding on four levels. Although the reasons for giving up on Vicente Padilla had merit, replacing him with Ryan Franklin may prove to be a blunder. Despite the apparent downgrades, the Phillies still will score runs and play good defense and they'll be competitive in the division race.
