Phillies Acquire Vargas In Trade With Mets


It is not clear what the Mets received in the deal, but given their moves the past 24 hours, why should we even try to understand what is going on in the Citifield front office?

I can tell you the deal certainly helps the Phillies team—who are currently ahead of the Mets in both their division and the wildcard race soooo… why the heck did they trade away two future prospects one day and trade away a current star the next..

The Phils figure to throw Vargas right into the starting rotation—and put even more space between them and the Mets.

And the further the better, because whatever insanity they have in their front office may be contagious.
