Familiar Faces / Strange Places: 2012 Trade Deadline

Shane Victorino & Hunter Pence in their new threads.

As expected, Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline delivered a flurry of moves for the Phillies. I can't say I am overjoyed about Victorino & Pence going to other National League teams, but I certainly understand why Ruben Amaro had to make those moves. The economics and flexibility these two trades bring to the club is important as they re-tool for next season. 
Nate Schierholtz started his Phils career the right way with a difference making home run against the Nationals last night.
