Charlie Manuel frequently makes poor strategic decisions. The 11-million dollar scoreboard in left field would probably do a similar job. We guarantee a post analyzing Manuel's decisions for every Phillies game. Please click on our aliases below to email us.

Holliday in?

SI.com is reporting the Phillies are the leading candidate to acquire LF Matt Holliday from the Colorado Rockies. Holliday is not a free agent, so the Phillies would have to give up some prospects, and according to the report, maybe even Shane Victorino in return.

I wouldn't give up Victorino for Holliday. He's a solid, young CF with an above-average OBP, great range, a hose for an arm, and increasing power. CFs are not easy to come by.

However, as for prospects, I would absolutely give up IF Jason Donald, OF Greg Golson, and/or P Carlos Carrasco. Carrasco is good, but his minor league career WHIP is 1.32, nothing special. That should obviously increase in the ML. He's no Cole Hamels type prospect. As for Donald, he's a middle infielder who may not have the arm for third base. Thus, he may be stuck behind Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley for years to come. Regarding Golson, he's no more than a track athlete who can't hit. Remember what we got for Michael Bourn, the last track athlete the Phils traded? Brad Lidge, who had a decent year in 2008 for the Phils.

I honestly don't know if the Rockies would ask for more than Golson-Donald-Carrasco: I'm not about to pretend I understand the MLB trade market. This is all just speculation on my part. All I'm saying is the only prospect I would hesitate to throw away in a deal for Holliday is Lou Marson, a catcher with a +.400 OBP in his minor league career. Catchers like that are impossible to find, and Carlos Ruiz will be 30 already before Opening Day.

Do I expect the Phils to get Holliday, just because of one SI report? No. I'd say the chances Holliday ends up in pinstripes (the real ones) are about 5-10%. But that's up from 1% before the report.

If it somehow happens, this would be one hell of a splash for new GM Ruben Amaro.

I really don't see the Phillies giving up Victorino. I mean they're not stupid. I'm not going to claim to know the deepest, darkest thoughts of the front office, but Victorino had an insane postseason (which causes people to salivate) and he won a Gold Glove (more salivating). I don't think the fan response would be very good if the Hawaiian left. They know that.

Hopefully Amaro can also see that our catcher situation is less than ideal. Ruiz isn't great offensively, while stellar defensively, and Coste isn't even really average at offense or defense.
