07:24 AM ET 11.07 | The heat is on in Philadelphia, where GM Ruben Amaro Jr. had to fire manager Charlie Manuel in the midst of an 89-loss season. Amaro is encouraging his staff to seek creative, innovative solutions, and the Phillies have gone so far as to kick around a trade for Price, according to major league sources. Two caveats: One, clubs discuss anything and everything at this time of year. And two, the Phils probably cannot acquire Price unless they part with their top pitching prospect, left-hander Jesse Biddle. Outfielder Domonic Brown also could be part of a package. ... [While] it's fun to think about a Phillies rotation with three star left-handers -- Price, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels -- the chances of a deal for Amaro getting Price probably are quite slim. Amaro needs to spread his money around.

Price will be traded to the team that has the best chance to extend his contract.

The Phils biggest needs are hitters not more pitching.

You never have too much pitching. But Brown only has 4 more years of team control left. I doubt the Rays would want someone that close to FA.

It will be difficult to beat the Wil Myers acquisition.
