I guess I should have been more clear on that... I meant if he had any sort of trade clause that did not allow being waived -- if that were allowed in MLB -- and he wanted to waive that clause but on a limited basis... like only to play with Charlie.
I fully understand the other aspects on the waiver process and the Phillies low position... that is why I questioned if a trade clause could come into play.
