So, as well as shopping Hamels, I also saw reports that the Phillies would also be interested in moving Shane Victorino. We need an upgrade in the outfield, as Torres has been a disappointment offensively so far, Bay is hurt and not what we need him to be, and Kirk is still too much of an unknown to be relied upon in a big role this year. If we want to make a push for the playoffs this year, do we entertain the thought of bringing in Victorino to play CF? This moves Torres to the bench and gives you a better offensive switch hitting CF. You can platoon Kirk and Hairston in LF for now and Bay when he gets healthy Kirk/Bay. Spell Duda for Hairston against the occasional lefty (not every lefty, just the occasional). Victorino is a FA at the end of this year, so if you don't want him to be part of the future, he doesn't have to be. If you want him, what would be the price you'd be willing to pay for him (in terms of prospects)?
