Phillies Still Eyeing Free Agents

Contrary to some previous reports, the Phillies are still keeping an eye on several free agents.  Todd Zolecki has the news over at MLB.com.

GM Ruben Amaro Jr. was asked if his club is still interested in Nomar Garciaparra.  "If I were to handicap this thing," Amaro responded, "I would say less than 50 percent."  It probably depends on the A's interest.  Phillies officials said last week that they have no desire to enter a bidding war with another team.

Amaro also said talks are "still open" with the representatives for left-handers Joe Beimel and Will Ohman.  "But nothing has changed there," added the general manager.  Both relievers are holding out for bigger and better offers.  As Zolecki writes,

Amaro said a few days ago that those relievers would have to accept a very modest salary to join the Phillies. That likely means a contract worth less than $1 million.
