BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you name the top 3 free agents you feel the Phils are most interested in and the percentage chance that we will see them in red pinstripes come April?
(John Doggit from Washington D.C.)
I really, truly, do not see the Phillies making any big acquisitions. If they had the money to make a big move, they would re-sign Jayson Werth or make a push for Cliff Lee, neither of which I expect to happen. They have a lot of money committed to 16 players and need another nine to field a team. I can see them pushing hard to re-sign Jose Contreras, and given his friendship with Danys Baez and his experience this season, I can see Contreras staying put.

But they are set at every position in the starting lineup and their bench is essentially set as well. It would be interesting to go for a better starter than Kyle Kendrick to round out the rotation, like a Jake Westbrook-type, but they seem content on letting Kendrick and Vance Worley compete for that last spot.

I think this is going to be the first year in what seems like a while where the Phillies don't make any significant moves. (Eric Seidman)
