    Could a ken Giles, Cody Asche to Boston deal be realistic? One priority for Boston this off-season is to upgrade the bullpen. Asche would give the RedSox a third base option if they were able to move Sandavol while also giving the Sox another first base option as well as a potential platoon option with Castillo.

      If the Phillies want to contend next season, they aren’t likely to deal their closer. I’m guessing this will be the case and they’ll aggressively look to upgrade their bullpen with guys who can get the ball to Giles. aIf they do consider it a rebuilding year, I imagine they’d at least listen.

      Asche had a strong 2nd half so I imagine he’ll have value. With Nick Williams and Roman Quinn closing in on the majors, I’m sure the Phils would move him in the right deal.

      In regards to Sandoval, don’t count on the Sox being able to move him. He’s due too much $ and his value has plummeted.

    Where’s the power on this team? Nowhere to be found, outside of an aging Ryan Howard, and Maikel Franco. Basically, they are putting this team on the back of Maikel Franco, and your 6 hitter is Cameron Rupp. That’s pretty sad. Arguably, the lineup has 5 guys that could either be a #2, #8, or #9 hitter. I see no legitimate lead off hitter in this group. If the Phillies would have invested a little money, not a lot, into their offense this off-season, they might actually be a pretty good team.

    As it stands on the farm, they have J.P. Crawford, who might be their only legit lead off hitter in the organization. However, given the lack of depth on offense, you might have to moved him to #2 or #3. You have Darnell Sweeney, who like many others falls into that #2, #8, or #9 category. Roman Quinn, another guy who you’d like to groom into a #1 hitter, but likely will fall into that #2, #8, #9 category. Nick Williams might be the only guy on the farm who has any power, but he’s probably going to be more of a future replacement for Howard, versus actually addition of offense.

    Lots of speed on this team, but basically no depth at the #3 – #6 lineup position.
