The Orioles and the Phillies have been linked a few times this offseason, with reports that Baltimore was interested in outfielder Marlon Byrd, and the Phillies were trying to pawn off Ryan Howard in the process. Now it appears that the Orioles have another Phillie on their radar, Charlie Manuel.
The trading of Jimmy Rollins last week to the Dodgers was the first step, for the Phillies in trying to rebuild their roster. It also signified the changing of the guard, the first indication that this franchise is truly prepared to move forward from their 2008 World Series championship team. Now as we look at this roster, its hard not to wonder "Who could be next?", and could that player be Ryan Howard?
Since the news surfaced last night that the Phillies were trading Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers, it was still unknown as to what the Phillies were getting back in return. Now that the dust has a settled, and all the moving parts seem to be in place, we finally have an idea as to who the Phillies acquired, in trading one of their more iconic players.
