The Phillies are 43-38 on the season which has them in third place in the N.L. East, 5 games behind the Braves. The Phillies need to add a solid starting pitcher and a couple of infielders who can start now and return to the bench when Chase Utley and Placido Polanco come off the D.L. Targets should include guys like Ty Wigginton, Mike Aviles, Mark Ellis, Jose Lopez, Adam Kennedy, Christian Guzman, Craig Counsell, Mike Fontenot, Jeff Baker, Jeff Keppinger and Andy LaRoche. As far as the starting pitcher goes I don’t think it will be Pedro Martinez as it would take him some time to get into shape. Don’t be surprised to see the Phillies go after Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt or Dan Haren. More than likely though they will likely turn to the second tier going after guys like Jeremy Guthrie, Fausto Carmona, Jake Westbrook, Ben Sheets, Ricky Nolasco, Dave Bush, Ted Lilly, Brett Myers, Wandy Rodriguez, Edwin Jackson or Rodrigo Lopez. The Phillies have to make some moves if they want to make the playoffs because the Braves and Mets are for real this season.
