Phillies acquire Kyle Lohse from Reds

The Phillies have acquired right-handed SP Kyle Lohse from the Cincinnati Red's for promising young pitcher Matt Maloney. Lohse is 6-12 on the year with a 4.58 ERA. The upside to Lohse is that he is only 28 and will attempt to help the Phillies with their injury ridden pitching staff. Matt Maloney, who is 23, is 9-7 with a 3.94 ERA. He is definitely a great pick up for the Reds who will probably rebuild their team in time.

In my opinion, the Phillies screwed up big time. They lost a great pitcher for the future who was durable and promising for a quick fix. Lohse has had woes his whole career will not help the Phillies pitching staff at all, even with their great offense. I think that he will bring them down, but only time will tell.

I would have to disagree with you. Lohse has pitched brilliantly in some starts, however, in others, he has got shelled. But, a 4.58 ERA is not TERRIBLE!!! That is around league average. And no, I'm not a reds fan.
