Philadelphia Phillies: Craziest Rumors of the Offseason

The Philadelphia Phillies have had an interesting offseason thus far, acquiring the top closer on the market in Jonathan Papelbon, power bats in Laynce Nix, Jim Thome and Ty Wigginton, and re-signing Jimmy Rollins.

We have seen teams like the Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Angels spend with reckless abandon on some of the top free agents available.

The Phillies had the most wins in team history (and MLB) in 2011 with 102, but were shocked by the eventual World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals in the first round of the playoffs. Has GM Ruben Amaro done enough tinkering with this still-powerhouse team to prevent such a heartbreak in 2012?

It's great to play GM with your buddies and family and toss around the idea of acquiring certain players, but you have to realize when the talk goes from fun to ridiculous.

Rumors are a big part of the game, but we have heard some crazy ones this offseason.

Here are the best of the best thus far.
