It's no sure thing that the Phillies are going to move the only Gold Glove-winning Home Run Derby champ on their roster. But an official of one interested team said: "Until we inquired, I had no idea he was as available as he really is."

Nevertheless, clubs that have spoken with the Phillies say they want to move him only for a top-of-the-rotation starter or a package that would dramatically change the nature of their pitching staff. Plus, the team taking him would have to find his $30-million price tag acceptable over the next two years.

So the matches are minimal. But get ready for rumors about the Cardinals (for Jason Marquis), Orioles (for Erik Bedard), Yankees (for Chien-Ming Wang), Giants (for Jason Schmidt), Astros (for Chad Qualls and Brandon Backe), Diamondbacks (if Javier Vazquez would agree to go to Philadelphia) and A's (for Zito, if there was a way to even out the money). One of them just might come true.

Is Jayson Stark kidding??? Is Philly looking to move his salary that badly?
