Probably wont happen but if they did I think he would be a great guy to target although im not really sure what Phillie would need or want.


Victorino
Phillips
Votto
Rolen
Bruce
Gomes

Victorino's D isnt all that great. He is probably average or slightly below.

I don't think he's especially flashy or oozing with natural ability like Stubbs, but Victorino is a solid CF. I know it isn't the end to the discussion, but he did win a gold glove, and I don't think it is like Jeter's case (based on reputation). He is a scrappier player who makes the most of his abilities. He would be more than adequate defensively.

Gold gloves are normally given to players on good teams. Victorino is probably an average CF but hes not anything amazing defensively.

Well, when we're playing as well as we are now, I'm less interested in acquiring players and more interested in letting our young guys continue to improve.
