Ed Wade Completes The Joke, Joins Phillies

 It's like he's baiting every Astros fan this morning. Like Astros County said, the jokes pretty much write themselves. After years of trading with Philadelphia, former Astros GM Ed Wade rejoined the organization as a scout.

Or maybe he's a special assistant to the baseball operations department. Whatever his title, it's clear he landed on his feet. When Wade was let go by Houston, he said he fully intended to keep working and everyone just assumed he'd land with Philly, right?

The real question is whether Philly will give him a bonus now that he's officially on the books for the Roy Oswalt and Hunter Pence trades. Plus, now the Phillies will be able to draft toolsy, raw prospects even more efficiently with the combined powers of Wade and the rest of the Philly organization.

Does that mean Jay Austin or T.J. Steele may get traded soon? I sure hope so. The jokes, they just write themselves.
