some juicy tidbits from mlbtr:

Quote
One baseball source believes that no MLB team will give Adam LaRoche anything beyond a two-year deal, tweets Bill Ladson of MLB.com.  The Nationals are optimistic that they'll retain the first baseman.
If the Nationals are able to re-sign LaRoche, the source believes that they will trade Michael Morse for prospects, Ladson tweets.  The source adds that the Rays would be the best choice in trade discussions as they are loaded with pitching prospects.
The Phillies are are expected to pursue a veteran starter to fill the hole vacated by Worley in the rotation and have already been calling around, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com tweets.
Given the price that Denard Span went for, the price the Phillies paid for Revere is shocking, writes Dave Cameron of Fangraphs.  Cameron argues that the Phillies have robbed Peter to pay Paul by filling their centerfield vacancy by creating a hole in their rotation.
Keith Law of ESPN.com (Insider sub. req'd) also sees the deal as an overpay for the Phillies and expresses optimism that May can get back on the right track in Minnesota.
