Phillies Acquire Wiggy

11

They split his 4mil salary for 2012, and Colorado acquires a PTBNL or cash. For the most part, I am sure, most of you TC'ers have already noticed this move. My question is, with all of the supposed talks between the Braves and the Rockies, why did the idea of acquiring Wiggy never come up?? He hits lefties pretty well for his career (.274/.353/.461), still has some pop left in his bat, and if the Braves trade Prado he could very well prove to be a cheap/effective backup for Chipper. Also, sparingly, he has even played some LF.....So....for basically 2 mil, and Cash or the oh so famous PTBNL, why did Wren not pull the trigger on the guy? Does he not answer many of the needs, if we had traded Prado? If we traded Prado for Smith and Wheeler, couldn't Wiggy just been a throw in?? I mean, it is possible that Wren was interested, but the Phils just beat him to the punch? (Which, from reading, it also turns out their impatience will cost them a draft pick for signing Papelbon! lol; when they could have just waited a little while, and it would have not cost them squat.....or atleast that is how I understood the situation) Anyways, like I said, could someone enlighten me....Why we did not even attempt or hear about even trying to get Wiggy??
