Butler can flat out rake and is at least better than Adam Dunn at first. He’s exactly the kind of hitter this team needs long term. plus i seriously doubt mcgehee and jones are with the pirates in 2013.

The Phillies will already need to get two outfielders this offseason. It would be absurd to make it three.

Of course it depends on what the asking price is. But Pence could be an intriguing pickup. I really don’t know though. We need a lead-off guy or someone with a decent OBP. Power is nice and would love to have an extra home run hitter but getting guys on at the top of the order needs to be a priority.

He’s not a good fit for the NL.

Just a DH and nothing more
