The Phillies simply couldn't afford to keep Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence and thus they were both traded.
Both players had undisciplined plate approaches. Victorino was an outstanding center fielder with a great glove and a strong arm. It will be difficult to find a productive, durable, replacement for him.
Hopefully Domonic Brown can replace Pence in right (or maybe he shifts to left).
Amaro opened some payroll space and probably needs to go even further if he wants to come back strong next season. It will be interesting to see if 2013 is viewed as a transitional year, or one of true playoff hopes.
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.
For those of us who are old enough to remember When Baseball Cards were King, the spring is always a special time of year.
