    Phillies looking for Starters


    Rosenthal: Phillies In Search Of Starters
    By Drew Silva [May 23, 2009 at 3:54pm CST]

    Ken Rosenthal appeared on the FOX broadcast of the Yankees vs. Phillies game this afternoon and dropped this bit of information:
    "There is no question the Phillies want another starter, maybe even two starters the way this thing might evolve. In a perfect world, they would get a number 2 to fit behind Cole Hamels, someone better than Joe Blanton, the pitcher they acquired last season. Obviously, we've heard about Jake Peavy this week. He probably would not want to come to Philly. But you'll be hearing about guys like Erik Bedard and Jarrod Washburn, who both pitch for the Mariners, maybe even Roy Oswalt. The Phillies are going to inquire and be in on every one of those pitchers."

    We're talking about fairly high-priced talent here. Do the Phillies have that kind of scratch? They set a franchise payroll record this season.
    Do you think they would make Michael Taylor available?

    Career minor league numbers:

    .308 .375 .505 880

    He's in AA right now, and has this line:

    .308 .369 .564 933

    Plus speed and defense.

    Would you give up Harang for him?

    Think they'd want their own homegrown guy back? Mr. Matt Maloney? He wouldn't be an ideal fit for CBP, but at least he would have a competent offense behind him.

    Maybe we should retitle thread, "Reds looking for starters."
