Phillies acquire LHP Jack Taschner 

Post#1 » by cold5 » Sat Mar 28, 2009 6:03 pm

According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Phillies acquired lefty reliever Jack Taschner today for catcher Ronny Paulino. The Phils had acquired Paulino from the Pirates on December 10th.

Taschner, 31 in April, allowed lefties to hit .279/.339/.394 line last year. They knocked him around in '07 even worse, so he's not the perfect fill-in for J.C. Romero.
Hmm. Might be a good move to replace J.C. Romero for half the season. They could have just gotten an RHP considering the presence of Eyre. Why do the World Series champs have such a small forum? No offense intended.

I f*ckin' hated Lenny Dykstra. He was like the Dustin Pedroia of that era except a bit more douchier.

Bautista outplays his contract by over $70 million the next four seasons (2013-2016).
