CBS Crew Predicts Splash for Phils in Offseason

Danny Knobler of CBS thinks the Phillies will make a splash with Ellsbury this offseason.

CBS Sports’ team of experts took to the web to predict the destination of some of baseball’s top free agents. A few of their panel had the Phillies making a move to solidify their outfield. Danny Knobler was, perhaps, the boldest, predicting the Phillies would sign Jacoby Ellsbury:

KnoblerPhillies. Could he leave? Could they let him go? Yes. Desperate Phillies step up and sign him.

Meanwhile, Jon Heyman, Scott Miller, and Dayn Perry all predicted a slightly smaller splash in right handed outfielder Nelson Cruz:

HeymanPhillies. Philly is desperate for outfield help after recent personnel errors there.

MillerPhillies. After Delmon Young last year, the Phillies can’t swing and miss in the outfield again, can they?

Very interesting – this may be the most up-in-the-air offseason for the Phillies in quite some time.
