David Murphy quotes Phillies GM Pat Gillick as saying he’s still looking for lefthanded relief help. Recently signed lefty Steve Kline is in the mix to fill the role, but isn’t a lock. Kline’s currently with the Phils’ Triple A club.
The Pirates’ John Grabow would be a nice addition; he’s thrown twelve scoreless innings. Damaso Marte is also probably available. Ron Mahay, George Sherrill, Scott Schoeneweis, Jamie Walker, and Royce Ring are other possibilities in my mind. But since the Phils already have J.C. Romero doing a nice job, maybe they’ll just pick up a lower-cost guy like Ray King or Mike Stanton.
