Phils Shopping Shane

14 Jul

According to a report from ESPN’s Buster Olney the Phillies are indeed shopping outfileder Shane Victorino.

Rival teams are saing that the Phillies‘ asking price for Shane Victorino is sky high right now.  Last week, people familiar with the club’s thinking told Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com that whether he is dealt before the deadline or plays out the year in Philadelphia, he doesn’t appear to be long for the organization.  Victorino was looking for a 5-year deal at the beginning of the season, and the Phillies most certainly won’t go there.

Victorino has looked lost at the plate, and a change of scenery might just be what he needs to turn it around.

Shane is said to be a fit for many teams including the IndiansPirates, and maybe the Yankees, but it’s not clear if anyone would give them value equal to the draft pick they would receive as compensation, tweets Olney.

One other fit for Victorino could be the Reds.  They’re currently looking for a lead-off hitter, but their outfield is pretty full with Jay Bruce, Drew Stubbs, and Ryan Ludwick.

Last night’s loss wis the Phillies 11th, in 12 games.  If the Phillies are going to turn things around, they need to start doing it yesterday.

Keep up with me on Facebook, and Twitter, and soon my App will be available in the iTunes store.
