Phils Eye Soriano, Sheffield During Off-Season ShuffleThis is what they're going to do with the money they freed up by giving away Bobby Abreu? Sign someone not as good, and, in Sheffield's case, a lot older?
The Phillies are expected to pursue Soriano, the Washington Nationals slugger who is a free agent, and Sheffield, whom the New York Yankees are expected to trade. Of course, the common thought is that the Phillies will land Soriano or Sheffield only if they trade Burrell and rid themselves of at least a portion of the $27 million he is owed over the next two seasons.
I really hate these guys.
