How bad can this guy be? The Philadelphia Phillies traded pitcher Mike Cisco to the Los Angeles Dodgers for nothing… nothing at all!
According to David Brown of Yahoo Sports, Phillies GM Ruben Amaro apparently was in the giving mood when he dealt the minor league prospect, but nothing in return? Not even a few bats or balls?
‘It would have been nicer if Amaro said the trade was for “future considerations,” or even “a player to be named later,” and later, after a few months, we all would forget about it. At least by then, Cisco wouldn’t have to suffer the indignity of being traded for a concept for which the ancient Greeks had no use.’
Minor League RHP Mike Cisco traded to Angels for no compensation, Phillies announce.
