Phillies Acquire Ronnie Paulino

Wednesday, December 10, 2008 ·

Ruben Amaro, Jr. made another move that holds little value for the everyday lineup. It was just another swap of players on the 40-man rosters. They traded prospect Jason Jaramillo to Pittsburgh for Ronnie Paulino.

Scott Lauber reported the deal and he feels that it means that Chris Coste will be dealt in the proposed three team deal for Mark DeRosa or some other players. [Delaware Online]

If our catchers are really Carlos Ruiz and Ronnie Paulino, we might as well just bat two pitchers.

Who knows anymore? We're also out of the race for Derek Lowe. So, who will be pitching in the #4 and #5 spots of the rotation? Why does it seem like all the money we're saving is being pocketed and not being used the most important matters in extending Howard and Hamels?

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
