Adios Hernandez!

The artist formerly known as Fausto Carmona was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers today for two players to be named later or cash considerations.  I've heard on good authority the anonymous players are none other than Clayton Kershaw and Yasiel Puig.  Woohoo!

Alright, enough wet dreams.  Roberto Hernandez was sadly the Phillies second most effective starting pitcher this season.  He was signed to a 1 YR/$4.5M deal this offseason and posted a 3.87 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over 121 innings pitched with a 6-8 record.  Not sure who takes his spot in the rotation now and not sure if it matters.  Dismal times my friends.  Dismal.
