Deadline Day

A quick check of the internet chatter showed me that Domonic Brown will be recalled if the Victorino to the Dodgers deal goes down.  Brown has been hitting very well since coming off the DL after a month, including 9 for 26 (.346) the last 7 games, which includes an 0 for 4 last night.

12:05 PM-  the deal is done, Vic to LA for 2 minor league pitchers.

12:10 PM-  Phillies receive reliever Josh Lindblom and former first round pick Ethan Martin, who was pitching in Chattanooga.  Martin was 8-6, 3.58 in 20 starts for the Lookouts.

Domonic Brown is on his way to Washington to join the Phillies.

12:27 PM-  Phillies trade Hunter Pence to the Giants.

 2:05 PM- Phillies get outfielder  Nate Schierholtz, minor league catching prospect Tommy Joseph, and right hand pitcher Seth Rosin from Giants for Pence.  Schierholtz can play immediately, and Joseph is considered a great prospect.  Rosin could be bullpen help for the big team at some point.
