“(The) Philadelphia Phillies (are) reportedly listening to offers for CF Shane Victorino, attempts to clear money for a big move.” – Rich Smith of All Sports Intel, a Twitter account for rumors.
Granted this isn’t a serious source, it’s still something to think about. If the Phils do in fact intend to clear money for a big move, Victorino is one of the players teams would covet as well as guaranteeing the Phillies a good return of prospects.
As noted by one of our followers, this “source” is the only one to report on a Victorino trade. Until a serious Phils beat writer or ESPN/MLB reporter weigh in on it, it’s nothing but a harmless rumor to stir the pot and get Phils fans a little riled.
