If you did not know, read the following thread:
I, for one, don't agree with the move. This could possibly be the first of the "infamous" Ed Wade moves.
Brad was doing fine, after his terrible start last year. He ditched the cutter, then took off. Yes, he had a bad save percentage (19 of 27) - however, the media perpetuates the idea that his defeat in '04 vs. Pujols was his inevitable downfall. Look closely at what he did, game-by-game, in 2007. His ERA was microscopic for almost all of the latter half of the season, until his knee injury reared its ugly head.
I will miss him. I hope that you Philly fans will appreciate him, as well as Bruntlett. They are great players, and great people.
