Andy Phillips Traded to Pale Hose

The Pirates traded Andy Phillips to the Chicago White Sox for pitcher Michael Dubee.

Andy didn't play yesterday. I thought it was because they were playing with NL rules, and so he couldn't DH. But maybe it was because this trade was in the works.

The Bucs also sent down backup infielder Luis Cruz to make room for outfielder Delwyn Young, acquired from the Dodgers. Cruz won the job Andy was competing for in spring training, so it looks like even if he'd made the roster, he wouldn't have stayed on it for long.

Well, I guess it's a good thing I didn't shell out big bucks to go to Syracuse and see Indianapolis play. Andy's new team is the Charlotte Knights, also in the IL. They'll be in Scranton in mid-May. I will definitely go to at least one of those games.
