Cain has a career 3.80 ERA on a bad Giants team and would be a welcomed young addition to the Phillies staff. Although he isn’t on the level of CC Sabathia or Rich Harden, Cain would give the Phillies a good arm for a postseason run. Cain would also allow Charlie Manuel to pencil in another quality starter for three more seasons.
For now, the Phillies could make a deep October run with the addition of Matt Cain and a rehabilitated Brett Myers.
Hamels – Cain – Myers – Kendrick – Moyer
That rotation could go a long way in the National League with the Phillies’ potent lineup.
