Phillies May Only Have $10MM To Spend

The Phillies need a starting pitcher, maybe two.  Problem is, they may only have $10MM left to spend.  All of that money is expected to go to pitching, so Aaron Rowand should pack his bags.

Todd Zolecki says the Phils won’t attempt to retain Kyle LohseCarlos Silva seems too pricey.  Instead, Zolecki names Hiroki Kuroda, Kris Benson, Matt Clement, Livan Hernandez, Tom Glavine, Mark Prior, Shawn Chacon, and Joe Kennedy as possibilities. 

Scott Lauber has heard from Ruben Amaro Jr. that the team will definitely consider Japanese options like Kuroda and reliever Masahide Kobayashi.  Trading for pitching seems unlikely, as the Phils would probably have to part with Shane Victorino to get anyone decent.
