Philly.com Sports: The Philadelphia Phillies have several holes they need to fill in order to return to prominence in the National League East. With a thin free agent market at third base, could general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. be looking to upgrade the position via trade?

That doesn't mean that a trade is imminent, or even that one is likely. But it does mean your ears should perk up when you hear Ruben Amaro, Jr. say he has had some "interesting discussions" during his first two days at the annual general managers' meetings.

There is a chance the Phillies' GM is playing coy, but if you look at his personnel situation pragmatically, you realize his best shot at another World Series title might come from the kind of bold move that has come to define his tenure.
