Cardinals Get: Brad Lidge, John Mayberry, Jr., prospect
Colby Rasmus could be a long shot for Philadelphia, but there is a small chance.
He is off to a very good start to his career. In two years, he is averaging over 20 home runs a season.
He already has 24 RBI's this season, on pace to be well ahead of his career average. As a .280 hitter right now, he fits in with the majority of the Phillies lineup.
He would be very difficult to acquire because the Cardinals really like him, but the Phillies may just have the players to pull it off. The Cardinals are looking for a closer, and the Phillies currently have three bullpen arms who have proved that they can be a closer.
When Brad Lidge returns, the Phillies could try to offer up him, as well as another young outfielder such as John Mayberry, Jr. and another prospect to get Rasmus.
