A lot of things came out today about the Phillies and their plans for a starting pitcher.
Jayson Stark wrote the Phils offered the Cleveland Indians an extensive package for CC Sabathia, but it didn’t include either pitcher Carlos Carrasco or catcher Lou Marson. Stark wrote:
“So without altering that stance, they might not even have the ammunition to get a second-tier starter. Phillies executives have been telling people they’re wary of both Erik Bedard and AJ Burnett. But at this point, they have no choice but to stalk both of them.”
Is it me, or is Philadelphia looking more and more like the future destination of Paul Byrd? And by the way, the only player I’d make untouchable is Marson.
