What they’re offering is unclear, but it would seem to start with Juan Rivera and Nick Johnson. Frankly, I think that the Braves could have beaten that.
The Phillies traded some leftovers to the Twins for Eric Milton and his $9 million salary. I don’t think that’s a good move for Philly, and probably guarantees that Kevin Millwood won’t stick around. Milton has a history of injuries, barely pitched last year, and has no record of great success. Right now, the NL East looks like Marlins-Braves-Phillies, though the Braves haven’t made their moves yet.
