Conine's bat agaisnt lefties is better than Dellucci's.
That was basically the point of the trade, in addition to his leadership qualities.

Another good trade addition by Gillick.

Lidle...maybe.

But Abreu? They were lucky to get somebody to take his massive contract off them at that time, and I'm sure they're still fine with him going in that deal. It was made to gain more financial flexibility in the future when they can actually become a real contender.

What's wrong with this deal? The Phillies are 1-1/2 games out of the wild card, and prior to today their bench consisted of guys like C. Roberson, D. Sandoval, J. Thurston, C. Coste.. :-o

Now they have a veteran guy they can bring off the bench in pinch-hitting situations and who you can reliably give some starts to now and then.. I don't see how this trade is anything but good for the Phillies..


Conine is no answer to anyone! Dellucci looks like a solid hitter with a career year before being traded/platooned. Wasting money on a bench player that has mediocre power and speed isn't something I call a good move.


Lifetime Dellucci is a .208 hitter with a .587 OPS against lefties.
This year, Conine is a .272 hitter with a .795 OPS against lefties.

The Phillies need a fifth OF who is a RH hitter. Conine's no great shakes, but he's cheap and he'll give the Phils far more than Dellucci will against lefties.


exactly ;-D

SIGS!

I agree, this trade will do nothing but improve a very shaky phil's bench...nice move

I agree with a lot of what has been said so far. I think it is a solid move for the Phils that improves the depth of the bench with a veteran presence who has playoff experience and two WS rings.

This is a move that is very similar to the Moyer move of a week ago both Moyer and Conine replace young players on the roster and provide the roster with additional age and experience.
