ESPN reported that the Phillies opened discussions with the Devil Rays about Rocco Baldelli.
The Phils are offering first base prospect Ryan Howard, but the Devil Rays reportedly aren't interested in the swap. We agree it wouldn't look great for Tampa from a PR standpoint with the average fan, but such a deal has merit given the D-Rays' stockpile of good young outfielders like Joey Gathright and Delmon Young.

Obviously, the person most affected by this trade would be Joey Gathright, as he would likely get a full-time job. It may be time to grab him if you haven't already.
