The Phillies decisions to move both Shane Victorino (Dodgers) and Hunter Pence (Giants) confirm that a full-throttle effort to begin a new era has begun.

While move dealing is yet to be done and some potentially dramatic moves could be made this offseason as well, make no mistake about the importance of this date in Phillies history.

Various pieces from the core of the Phillies team that won the 2008 World Series (Howard, Utley, Rollins, Ruiz and Hamels) are still in place at the present time. Blanton is rumored to be dealt soon and Kendrick is also still with the team.


Whether Jakub Voracek was going to be included in Paul Holmgren's follow-up deal to the Predators for any Shea Weber signing is irrelevant now.

What is relevant is that the Flyers have signed their nice RFA winger to a four-year deal today. It will be interesting to see how he plays with 'G' and 'Hartsy' on the top line.

Baseball cards

For those of us who are old enough to remember When Baseball Cards were King, the spring is always a special time of year.

Bygone days spent with elementary school days and family members opening packs of Topps cardboard gold never truly fade away.


Here is a hockey story that all ice fans will like: The mystery behind these 1970s Topps hockey cards is revealed.
