Buster Olney of ESPN.com hears that the Phillies are OK with Josh Hamilton's annual salary demands but are concerned about the length of the deal.  Hamilton reportedly is seeking a seven-year, $175 million deal in free agency, but it would be a surprise if he got that much - especially from the Phillies.

Last week, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com was told by agents and rival executives that the Phillies, among some other teams could be a fit for Josh Hamilton.

On Wednesday's edition of the Sports Bash, Mike Gill talked about the possibility of Hamilton coming to the Phillies.
