Phillies Trade Ben Francisco to the Blue Jays; I Have Yet Another Useless Jersey

Posted by Frank Klose

Ok, so maybe some of you could call my #10 Ben Francisco jersey useless already.

According to many reports, like this one from CSNPhilly, Ben Francisco has been traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for minor league relief pitcher Frank Gailey.  Gailey may just be minor league inventory.   The CSN report states that he is a graduate of Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor, PA.

This is mainly to spare Francisco from being non-tendered.   What this does do is save the Phillies a couple million dollars and give them a slot for another right-handed outfielder.

It won't be Aaron Rowand, who could make the major league minimum, will it?

FOR SALE: #10 red batting practice jersey with "Francisco" on the back.   $35 OBO.
