The Phillies are going to be looking for at least 1 starting pitcher at the trade deadline. They will be hot after Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee but the price tag in prospects might scare them off. If that is the case the Phillies will inquire about the following pitchers: Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Tallet, Doug Davis, Jon Garland, Jonathan Sanchez, Carl Pavano, Scott Olsen, Chad Gaudin, Kevin Correia, Ian Snell, Andy Sonnanstine, Bronson Arroyo, Homer Bailey and Greg Smith. The Phillies are bound and determined to improve the rotation so they will get one of the above mentioned pitchers. The Phillies could also be in the market to improve the catching situation. Victor Martinez of the Indians would be the big prize but the price for him will be huge. With that in mind, Rod Barajas, Chris Snyder, Kelly Shoppach, Taylor Teagarden, Miguel Olivo and John Buck could likely be had. Only Teagarden and Shoppach would likely cost more than a so-so prospect in this bunch of catchers. The Phillies are hungry to win back-to-back World Series and they are willing to pay the price to make that happen.
