It's sad when one of your favorite players is traded.
It's even sadder when the cause of the trade is Ty Wiggington.
(I know his lack of defensive play factored into it, I'm blaming Wiggington)
But it isn't as bad when he is traded to a team that will definitely utilize him...and a team that I actually support.
Fare the well, Sir Thome. May the sun never set on you, or on Baltimore. May the Orioles win even more games, now that you are among them. And may the prospects gained by the Phillies prosper, in time.
Godspeed, Jim. The Phillies will remember you.
