Deep Thoughts: ex-Phillies edition

Forgot to mention this earlier, but I was really wondering last night how it felt for Phillies fans to see Raul Ibanez play hero on Wednesday night and then, less than 20 hours later, seeing Jayson Werth play the hero for the Nats.

If Scott Rolen had gone yard instead of striking out to end the Giants-Reds game, it may have been pandemonium.  And I wonder if it’s too late for the Yankees to get Shane Victorino to replace Granderson in center tonight …

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
