Phils looking for some outfield help.

April 1, 2009

jonesnSeems the Philadelphia Phillies may have some interest in both Gary Sheffield and Andruw Jones. To Replace recently release Geoff Jenkins.

Sheffield was released yesterday by the Detroit Tigers and Jones is competing with Frank Catalanato for a spot on the 25 man roster with the Texas Rangers. From what I have been hearing it seems that Jones most likely will win that spot, however that doesn’t mean that couldn’t change if the Phillies want to make a deal for him.

I would think Sheffield is the better option for thePhillies offensively, however there still is the question on whether or not he will be able to preform in the field .  Here’s an Idea, Ruben Amaro Jr the Phillies new Gm should call up Brian Cashman and see what they have in trade for Melky Cabrera who recently lost his starting CF job to Rookie Brett Gardner.  Now I’m not saying I have heard anything like this but If it comes true just remember who called it first.
