I mean, hindsight is 20/20, but I'm trying to put myself back in the mindset of when that Halladay trade went through and I just can't help but remember how highly I regarded the prospects leaving the org (particuliarly Drabek).
Yeah, I had high hopes for Taylor as well, but I always had doubts about his game at the highest level. He was a big recruit coming out of HS, went to Stanford and under performed, got drafted and pretty much dominated, and then he got to AAA and fell on his face.

Hard to believe Alderson squeezed 2 top prospects for Dickey when many thought he couldnt.
Thole and Buck both suck so that is a wash. Guess there is a PTBN prospect on both sides included in the deal as well.
Thole was a package deal with Dickey- he's his personal catcher lol. I'm just glad the Mets didn't get Gose too. That would have been awful.

Baseball America released the Phillies top 10 prospects today:

1. Jesse Biddle, lhp
2. Roman Quinn, ss
3. Tommy Joseph, c
4. Jon Pettibone, rhp
5. Adam Morgan, lhp
6. Ethan Martin, rhp
7. Cody Asche, 3b
8. Maikel Franco, 3b
9. Darin Ruf, 1b/of
10. Carlos Tocci, of
