What we’re throwing down on the Table this week is a great interview with Eric Chesterton from MLB.com Cut4. First, Eric graded Matt Klentak after acquiring a couple new pieces before the trade deadline. From there, we dove into and analyzed the newly acquired Phillies – Astrubal Cabrera, Wilson Ramos and Aaron Loup – and how they’ll impact the team moving forward. We also discussed how Maikel Franco is still wearing the red pinstripes and why. Can Jake Arietta end the season strong, and help minimize not getting an additional starter?
