Sports Radio Moment of the Day

On Thursday's show, Mike Missanelli suggested that if Jimmy Rollins keeps slumping, the Phillies might have to think about trading him. But only if they can get a really good pitcher back, a #2 at least.

How can anyone watch baseball for any number of years and not know how this works? If a pitcher is in position to trade high-end pitching, they're going to ask for multiple top prospects back. They're not going to want a veteran shortstop, especially one who's having the worst year of his career. And this goes for the talk show callers too, who regularly suggest trade scenarios along the lines of Jayson Werth, Shane Victorino and Jamie Moyer for Roy Halladay.
