2004 Topps Heritage Then & Now #TN4 Robin Roberts & Roy Halladay

There has been a deal.

No, not this guy . . . that other guy. We got the guy who won the 2008 AL Cy Young Award and cost the Phillies way less than what the Blue Jays wanted for this guy. (Pending medical evaluations, of course).

The Phillies have acquired pitcher Cliff Lee and outfielder Ben Francisco from the Cleveland Indians for pitcher Carlos Carrasco, pitcher Jason Knapp, shortstop Jason Donald and catcher Lou Marson.

The latest 2009 Chachi cards will follow as soon as the whole thing is official. I'll also have a final Phillies Room tribute to the departing quartet of prospects. Isn't trade deadline time a magical time of year?
