Lohse traded to the Phillies

Postby Havok1517 » Mon Jul 30, 2007 3:56 pm

The Phillies have reportedly acquired Kyle Lohse from the Reds for left-hander Matt Maloney.

That's just not particularly impressive for either side. Maloney ranked behind fellow lefties Josh Outman and J.A. Happ and was probably no better than the team's eighth or ninth best pitching prospect. The Phillies needed a veteran starter, but Lohse is a poor fit for their ballpark with his flyball tendencies. He'll replace J.D. Durbin in the rotation.

I was expecting a boatload of retarded RPs , so Maloney is a surprise.
He's not that amazing , but seeing as he throws from the left side they can move him on for more if they like.

I'm okay with this deal considering there was no way the Reds were going to retain the pending-FA Lohse (Boras client). Interesting that Lohse has 12 quality starts this tear mixed in with some awful ones.

Good riddance Kyle. One of the most fickle, panzy pitchers I've ever seen.

That being said I think this works out well for Philly, as he's a substantial upgrade at the backend of their rotation for the stretch run. I think he's a got a few gems (with a a couple of disasters inbetween) left in him this year.

Maloney's probably garbage, but ya never know.

Prediction: Lohse is a set-up man for one of the New York, California teams next year and winds up getting 5-10 saves.

Exactly what us Twins fans said when we got rid of him.
