The bow tie man himself, little baby Ken Rosenthal, is reporting that the Phillies may be interested in adding A BAT, SOME POWER, A LITTLE POP!

From FOX Sports:

As the markets for hitters continue to stagnate, the Phillies are lying in wait.

The Phillies are open-minded to adding another bat through free agency or trade, according to major-league sources.

The team’s wide-ranging list of potential targets includes free-agent outfielder Jose Bautista, who is perhaps the best hitter still available. But the Phils, seeking the lowest possible acquisition cost, consider Bautista a less likely option; they are reluctant to lose a draft pick for signing him, sources say.

The Phillies, operating from a position of strength, need not rush into a move with the supply of hitters far exceeding the demand. The team possesses two significant advantages in the market — more payroll flexibility than most clubs, and more playing time to offer free agents, particularly in right field.

Free-agent outfielders Michael Saunders and Brandon Moss are among the other possibilities that the Phillies are considering, sources say.

Intriguing. But Bautista is 36 and sort of fell off a cliff last year with his lowest OPS since 2009, the last time he didn’t make the all-star team. Moss, meanwhile, fun fact, was let go by the Phillies after the 2011 season when Ruben Amaro said he couldn’t hit a fastball. Moss has hit 123 home runs over the last five seasons. FUCK YOU, RUBEN!
