Nothing major to report, but a couple things to report nonetheless ...
The Phillies have contacted Pat Burrell's agents to express their interest in bringing him back, although those discussions didn't get specific. In other words, I don't think they talked money or years. I think this was just the Phillies' way of saying, "Hey, Pat, we appreciate the years you've given to the organization and we'd like you back, but we'll talk later." I have said a few times that I think it is less likely than likely that Burrell returns, and I still believe that is the case because I think Burrell would have to take a contract that favors the Phillies to return. In other words, I could see the Phillies offering Burrell a one- or two-year contract. If another team, perhaps an American League team, offers Burrell a three- or four-year contract, is Burrell going to say no and take a lesser deal to stay in Philadelphia?
The Phillies continue to talk seriously with Jamie Moyer's agent about a contract extension. I expect something to happen, but maybe not before the weekend.
