Trade market looks good for a Cesar Hernandez deal

pnation_bell-bigGood morning! There’s definitely news to talk about today:

Makes sense. We outlined some of the reasons that would lead Hellickson to accept the offer, and that falls in line. In the end it’s a good deal for both sides. The Phils get a decent pitcher on a short-term basis, while the pitcher gets money and a chance at further proving himself.

On the outfielders: The Phillies shouldn’t be in the market. It’s not worth signing a 30-plus-year-old outfielder to a multi-year deal and lose a draft pick.

On Walker: The second base market is very, very thin, starting probably with Chase Utley, who could get a one-year deal somewhere. That means there’s a market for a younger second sacker like Cesar Hernandez. No doubt the Phils will be in on trade talks.

The Dodgers just love those former Phillies!
