Orioles Outfield Search Could Lead to Marlon Byrd
So the Major League Baseball GM winter meetings came and went and Cole Hamels is still a member of the Phillies - for now at least.
While the Phillies did add a little shock value to the week by moving franchise staple Jimmy Rollins and relief pitcher Antonio Bastardo - Hamels and others are still here, but that doesn't mean their name wasn't brought up and a future move could happen.
One deal discussed, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, the Phillies offered the Orioles Ryan Howard in a package with Marlon Byrd. The Orioles are in search of a outfielder and have interest in Byrd, but the Phillies might insist that Howard is a part of the deal - which of course could kill the deal.
