Phillies - Acquired Iguchi

Philadelphia Phillies - Acquired 2B Tadahito Iguchi from the Chicago White Sox for P Mike Dubee.

Purely a fill-in at 2nd while Utley’s broken hand mends.  Iguchi’s performance has dropped off quite a bit, but then again, he’d be far from the first second baseman to decline prematurely in his early 30s.  Remember when the Favorite Toy had Steve Sax with a shot at 3000 hits?  He didn’t make 2000.

Dubee’s been converted to a full-time reliever.  With a decent fastball and solid performance, he could be a useful middle reliever someday, but the Sox will have to wait and see how he fares up the ladder.  The Phils would have been better off keeping him, but they’re only 3 1/2 behind the Mets and less behind the Wild Card-leading Diamondbacks and the team has a pretty awful group of Plan Bs for their star hitters.
