Phillies fire sale starting?
Too early to say. It very likely has more to do with Howard's eventual return and the opinion of the Phillies' brass that Wigginton, Luna and, every so often, Mayberry can cover 1B than anything else.
In other words--I wouldn't salivate over the prospect of acquiring Victorino just yet.
