More would be less now that the Phillies have reached the end of this long, drawn-out ordeal that started in July, so rather than beat a dead horse with another Roy Halladay column, here are some links.
Bill Conlin calls Ruben Amaro the master of the shell game. Rich Hofmann wonders "Why not Lee and Halladay?" David Murphy notes that Kyle Drabek wasn't untouchable after all. Bob Ford identifies that Philadelphia is now the place to be. Phil Sheridan admires what he sees as a bold move by the second-year GM. Ken Rosenthal, in a leftover from yesterday, reminds readers of the ludicrously high cost of top-flight pitching. Perhaps my favorite piece is Jayson Stark's Q&A with Baseball America's John Manuel, who covers the Phillies' farm system. While everyone knows the impact this deal will have on the big club for years to come, Stark and Manuel illustrate the toll it will take on the organization and identify a few holes this will create starting as early as 2011.
But even with the issue attacked from so many sides, there's still room for a good column entitled "OK, so what about the bullpen?"
