With news from multiple media sources that the Phillies are discussing a "major" deal, the question becomes: Who will be stepping onto the mound for the Phillies this next week? And perhaps more importantly, what Phillies will be donning some other teams duds?
It seems almost assured that Jayson Werth, the lone right handed power bat in the Phillies lineup, will be heading out of town. Contract talks have apparently not gone well and the Phillies are concerned that they will not be able to sign him to a long-term deal.
So, if Werth is traded, is he traded in a separate (gulp—deja vu from the Lee deal) trade or is he part of a trade to acquire a starting pitcher. Let's look at some of the potential targets for the Phillies and vote on the likelihood of them joining the team.
