Phillies To Pursue One Impact Pitcher

Brett Myers is out for the season with hip surgery.  Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports spoke to Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr., who said the Phillies don't have the money to add multiple starters.  Instead they'll aim high, with names like Erik Bedard and Roy Oswalt speculated by Rosenthal.  So, not a Brad Penny type.  SI's Jon Heyman wrote about Bedard's appeal earlier today.

Rosenthal also wonders if Myers' surgery could restore some lost velocity, making him an intriguing free agent after the season.
