The ignominy. Mike Cisco cost absolutely nothing. And he's all ours!

Why nothing? Well, you tell me. Perhaps it comes down to the fact that the Phillies are flush with pitching, and the dude is short. Like 5'8" short.

Nothing special in those peripherals, but nothing terribly troubling either. Great career ERA and WHIP. Success as both a starter and reliever.

We'll take everything we can get at this point. Even if it's the embalmed body of Patrick McGoohan – can't put a price on freedom, man.

Alden catches us up here.
