From the Philadelphia Inquirer


But while an Abreu-for-Ramirez trade doesn't seem to be a fit, it doesn't mean the Phillies and Red Sox won't get together next week during the winter meetings in Dallas. Abreu could land in Boston yet. One trade that might make more sense would involve Red Sox rightfielder Trot Nixon and a pitcher, possibly righthander Matt Clement. The Sox would be willing to move Nixon, and they have a surplus of pitching.

Phillies need pitching. And Clement might thrive again in the N.L. Kinda makes sense.

Not for Nixon, a guy who can't stay off the DL and Clement who might be scared to pitch after taken one of the dome.

When you can't make enough room for Brandon McCarthy on your playoff roster, you can be considered to have pitching depth.

Boston has a large number of major-league pitchers. This should not be confused with quality depth.

If I were a Phillies fan, I'd be very concerned with all of these rumors about trading Abreu. Do they have an abundance of stud OF prospects or something? I don't understand why they'd even consider any of the trades that have been floating around with the BoSox.

Especially with grandpa Gordan as your closer for 3 years.
