Hmm, alot of Phillies rumors this week. I know Millwood's name has come up, he has really been struggling. As the ace he is letting the staff down and
wearing the bullpen down as well.
I wouldn't mind Livan Hernandez coming to Philly as we could really use a quality starter, but I cant see why they would bring Guardado here. He's
typically been a closer and the Phils have Billy Wagner, Tim Worrell, and Rheal Cormier.
I would really like to see Finley in a Phils uniform. The centerfielder that started the seson for the Phils, Marlon Byrd, has been sent to the minors
and they have been platooning Ricky Ledee, Jason Michaels, and Doug Glanville in centerfield. They are all decent bench players but Finley is a
quality starting CF'er who covers a ton of ground in the field and isn't too shabby at the plate. I wonder what they'd have to give to Arizona for
If the Phils were to swap Lowe and Millwood with Boston, the Phils still are missing an ace. Lowe and Millwood are both more like #2 starters.
Millwood would probably do great in Boston behind Schilling and Pedro because all of the sudden he has no pressure as the #3 guy.
I dont think there's any doubt the Phils will do some tinkering before the July 31 trade deadline. Of all the names rumored, I'd like to see Finley
the most in Philly.
