The Phillies just traded Robinson Tejeda and Jake Blalock to the Rangers for David Dellucci.

In other words, they traded a 24-year-old power pitcher who had a 3.57 major league ERA last season as a rookie, and a low-level hitting prospect who's the younger brother of a two-time all-star, for a 32-year-old 5th outfielder who hit .251 last year.

It's not even opening day, and I'm already hating the Phillies. They better know something I don't...
