Ruben Amaro Jr. has tried to stay patient during the MLB Winter meetings this week, hoping to not overpay and jump into a big contract just to make news. However, at this point the waiting game may start to hurt the team. Nearly all of the targets for the Phillies have signed elsewhere. Angel Pagan and B.J. Upton were the teams top targets at the beginning of the free agent period and they have signed with the Giants and Braves, respectively. There were a few plan B's for the Phillies including former Phillies Shane Victorino and Michael Bourn. Victorino has agreed to a deal with the Red Sox and Bourn remains a free agent.
