That's not how it happened. They were on their last year of actually being the Expos, and thought they'd be contracted, so Minaya made a last ditch move to make the playoffs. It was stupid, but it isn't why the Nationals aren't in Montreal.
point was that they would be in montreal if they didnt suck every year and make trades like that.
Yeah, even if Wheeler panned out, he'd still be the 4th starter on the Giants LOL. I know they have concerns about his delivery and the dreaded "inverted W" arm action. I'm happy the deal isn't for Gary Brown though, because I know the Giants management has a much better grasp on pitching prospects rather than hitters. If they're giving away Wheeler for a 2-3 month rental, then you have to think they are not high on him.
I just watched some video and I didn't see the W. Maybe I'm mistaken but his delivery didn't seem as terrible as I thought it was going to be. It looks more smoothed out from his HS days.
Two good bounces for the Phillies in one inning, and Chooch resorts to his early playing days with a GIDP. I wish Brown would develop more on the basepaths. He's overly aggressive on his own initial hits but not aggressive enough when a baserunner with others up behind him. Albeit, he's at the bottom of the order but it'd be nice to see him pick up a couple more steals. Tonight was a perfect time to send him on a fairly easy pitcher to run on in Cain.
