Philadelphia, Sports Capital of the Universe

The dual myths about the Eagles and Phillies being cheap both died a happy death last week, with the nearly concurrent moves in which the Phillies traded for Hunter Pence, while the Eagles signed Nnamdi Asomugha, both of whom were the most highly sought-after players in their respective sports.
The Nnamdi deal followed several crucial signings and trades by the Eagles, while the Phillies managed to land Pence without giving up Domonic Brown or Vance Worley, yet another reason to be glad the local terms aren’t run by talk show callers.
I’m guessing Richard Rys would like to have this Philadelphia Magazine blog post back. In the post, written last week, Rys chides both teams for not having done anything yet, while demanding that the Phils trade Worley for Pence.
