Looking for Bullpen Help
The Phillies continue searching for bullpen help, but Ruben Amaro Jr. said late last week that help would not come until after Christmas.
I know they have been interested in Fernando Rodney, but a source said tonight that talks aren’t serious. The Phillies have had interest in John Smoltz and there also have been reports about interest in Mike MacDougal, but there are indications the Phillies are looking in a different direction.
Chan Ho Park? Amaro said he is unlikely to re-sign.
Scott Eyre? Amaro said he has a better chance to return than Park, but it sounds like the Phillies are holding firm on their offer.
So who is out there? Names to watch include Danys Baez, Miguel Batista and Bob Howry. The Phillies have liked them in the past.
