Odds And Ends: Burrell, Ramirez, Moyer, Eyre, Japan

Some good stuff from Scott Lauber at the Amaro announcement, per MLB Trade Rumors:

  • Pat Burrell has changed agents to Philly-based Ed Hayes.

If it’s a sign, it’s positive that Burrell may stay with the Phillies. He declined a two-year/$22M contract Friday. Look for the Phils to offer a little more monetarily.

  • On that note, none of the top free agents lists gives the Phils much addition, including in left field.

I don’t get that. If Burrell goes, someone has to come in. I don’t see Geoff Jenkins going everyday, and I certainly don’t see Greg Golson or Jeremy Slayden coming in to play. If not Burrell, it’s either Milton Bradley, Rocco Baldelli or Juan Rivera. (Or Matt Holliday …)

  • Why? Amaro dismissed Manny Ramirez as an option.

Good. Not enough money, and a pain in the rear. This team doesn’t need him.

  • Amaro also said they’d like to re-sign Jamie Moyer and Scott Eyre.
  • Finally, in other news, Tadahito Iguchi and So Taguchi may go back to Japan.
