Burrell, Moyer File for Free Agency

Pat Burrell and Jamie Moyer filed for free agency today.

This is just a formality. Every potential free agent files at some point. Today just happened to be the day Burrell and Moyer filed. Ruben Amaro Jr. indicated he expected to begin negotiations shortly with Moyer and Scott Eyre. I don't think the Phillies are in a rush to re-sign Burrell, so those talks could take longer to develop.
