Winter Meetings Day 2 Wrap

Here’s your recap of day two of the Winter Meetings.

  • The Phillies rewarded Charlie Manuel will a contract extension through 2011. That would make Manuel the manager of the Phils for seven seasons, the longest-tenured skipper since Paul Owens.
  • The Cubs denied certainty of a trade that would send Jake Peavy to Chicago and possibly Mark DeRosa to Philadelphia. Last night, however, the Phillies confirmed a trade was in the works.
  • In that trade, the Padres are rumored to be looking at catching prospect Jason Jaramillo. Kyle Kendrick joined JA Happ in the trade talk.
  • Raul Ibanez said he wants to play for the Phillies, and it was reported the Phils are among top aggressors to get the outfielder.
  • Derek Lowe also likes the idea of being a Phillie, and it was reported the Phils and Yankees are the highest bidders for him. He wants a five-year deal, reportedly.
  • No movement on the Jamie Moyer and Pat Burrell fronts; however, it seems there’s no way Burrell is returning.
  • The Phils looked into Andy Pettitte as a potential back-end starter.

There will certainly be more juice today, so stay with us. Hopefully the server will be cool today.
