Yesterday on the Sports Bash, ESPN Sr. baseball writer Jayson Stark joined me on the show to discuss a plethora of Phillies rumors that have been out there this off season.

One big name that we discussed is 23-year old Cuban outfielder Yasmany Tomas, who Stark thinks could be in Philly very soon.

Part I:

Part II: 

So why have the Phillies cooled off on Tomas?

Hagen writes Thursday that the club views Tomas "as more of a designated hitter-type player" after scouting him in a number of public and private workouts.

Even with all that talk, many around baseball still think the Phillies are the frontrunners to land Tomas.

The 23-year-old Cuban defector is thought to be seeking a deal worth more than the record $72.5 million pact.
