Welcome to the Phillies Nation Podcast!
Today, Pat Gallen is joined by Mike Gill of 97.3 ESPN Radio in Atlantic City. Mike and Pat break down all of the free agent news that pertains to the Phillies. Third base, the bullpen, a new bench, and a fifth starter are some of the topics they touch on in the podcast today.
Mike and Pat both agree that Adrian Beltre, and possibly Mark Derosa, is a good fit for this team, and that Chone Figgins is probably a bit too expensive for the Phillies. As for the starters, there are a ton of names out there, but Pat and Mike seem to agree on one or two that could stand out for the Phils in 2010.
