Mitch is a real straight-shooter on the MLB Network and I'd love to see him join the Phils' broadcast team.

All of the options (Williams, Moyer, Morandini, Stocker) appear to be solid though.

Mlb.com has an article about us possibly signing Burnett.

What do you guys think?

With this hitting lineup and bullpen, it doesn't really matter who's in the starting lineup, to be honest.

If it means KK won't be penciled in as our #3 im all for it. Hell they could sign Hideo Nomo for all I care. Kendrick and #3 shoukd never go together unless you're talking about taking a leak and a **** at the same time and calling it a #3 because that's about what he equates to

He wouldn't cost us a draft pick either. Do it.

I wouldn't be against it. Since '09 his GB rate has been steadily climbing and his Flyball rate lowering, so that's generally a good sign, especially in CBP. His WHIP is also generally declining since then, while he wasn't particularly lucky or unlucky as his BABIP was pretty steady. These stats help paint a picture of a guy who's got good command of his pitches.

He is 37 though, so you might have to be wary about his age a bit. Even if veteran pitchers are a bit of a different animal when it comes to aging compared to everyday players.

I'd rather watch Burnett just for the entertainment. The Phillies are going nowhere.

Well he fits the Phillies' age profile.

This. Worth a prospect if he pitches well at the deadline.
