But on the Phillies talk on John -- dollars alongside Jim Salisbury CSN Philly dot com. Phillies insider. Lot of names being bandied about during the offseason hot stove league what about Melky Cabrera how would he fit with the Phillies twelve -- Cabrera would have been one of the prizes on this free agent market probably look in his deal. You know 45 years something like eighty million. Cost himself a lot of money -- that steroid suspension I think he's got to now be looking at a one year deal try to rebuild himself. As a player and rebuilt his reputation. The short term nature -- it probably would be attractive to the Phillies the fact that he can play center field. It -- right handed definitely attractive to the Phillies but the baggage I have to think that would give the Phillies paused and you're talking about a guy who tested positive for steroids. And then engaged in. Cover -- attempt that was embarrassing and you know illegal you know the defensive poked around -- that case a little bit so it's not a good scene for Melky Cabrera. The Phillies I'm not sure they wanna take on that baggage even though. He'd be very he did good fit if he didn't have that baggage all right for Jim Salisbury at John Gonzales thanks to watch a Phillies talk.
