Yesterday the Phillies traded for Hunter Pence (who is awesome, trust me, he’s on my fantasy team), and the Eagles signed a defensive back (who honestly was pretty insignificant on the Raiders) that, if you believe the hype, was the top free agent on the market and the key to winning the Superbowl.  Not to mention a guy named Vince Young who’s had some success playing football before.  So the point is this: both Philly teams went out and got guys to put themselves in good position to compete for titles.  They look to be some of the stiffest competition for a couple other favorites, the Red Sox and Patriots.  Jealous New York?
