Free agent Aaron Rowand's pretty serious about leaving town. The Phillies slugger and wife Marianne listed their six-bedroom colonial in Garnet Valley, Delaware County, for $985,000 12 days ago.

As we reported in today's column, the couple bought the 6,750-square-foot house in February 2006 for $799,000 and according to the listing with Long & Foster, in Media, have added $200,000 in "additional features." That means they're listing it for a loss, and seemingly in a hurry to sell. 

Phillies GM Pat Gillick said last week it was "a long shot" the team would come to an agreement with the centerfielder, who is looking for a deal of at least five years.

The house on a cul-de-sac features a 42-inch wood-burning fireplace with marble surround speaker system for the plasma TV. Among rooms is a conservatory, though Prof. Plum and the lead pipe are not included. Some people get that joke, others don't have a Clue.
