The Phillies are trying to trade Shane Victorino for bullpen help, Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio reports (Twitter links). They realize they'll have to pay part of his $9.5MM salary to facilitate a trade.

The Dodgers and Reds continue to talk to the Phillies, according to Bowden. The Phillies are interested in a Victorino for Logan Ondrusek swap or a Victorino for Josh Lindblom deal, Bowden reports. The Pirates and Yankees have also been linked to Victorino. The Orioles like Victorino as well, Roch Kubatko‏ of MASNsports.com reports (on Twitter).

Based on the other trades, it would probably take Troy Patton or Pedro Strop to acquire Victorino.

Would you deal Patton or Strop for Victorino?

Not for either one. Victorino simply does not provide enough help now (free agent next) to move guys who will be a big part of your pen in 2013.

Patton. Patton is solid but i'm a huge Strop fan. His stuff is filthy.

Definitely not Strop. Patton maybe, if the Phils pay part of the salary.

I'd trade Patton for Victorino in a heartbeat.
RP are a dime a dozen, and the Orioles actually are pretty stacked there. It even trickles back to Bowie.

The Phillies probably wouldn't do that however.

I would assume that you would put him in LF. That would mean removing someone from the roster. Do you think the team is finally ready to cut ties with Reynolds?
