Phlurry of Philly Sports Teams’ Moves

It was a big week off the field for the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies. The Eagles traded backup QB Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals for All-Pro Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second round pick. Unless Kolb turns out to be the second coming of Brett Favre, this looks like a great trade. Then, to corner the market even more, the Eagles pulled off a stunner by signing All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha as a free agent. Then, to avoid a Kafkaesque situation at backup quarterback, the Birds signed former Pro Bowl quarterback Vince Young. Earlier this week, the Eagles signed Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin, wide receiver Johnnie Lee Higgins, and tight end Donald Lee. Not to be left out, the Phillies made a big trade, getting All-Star rightfielder Hunter Pence from the Astros for four minor leaguers. This move will bolster an already strong lineup and could put the Phils over the top. So which move is your favorite? Do you like all of these transactions? Do you have any concerns about any of the deals? Has Joe Banner shed his image of being cheap? Comment below. Photo from
