Phillies After Ibanez?

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, the Phillies plan to take a look at free agent outfielder Raul Ibanez. Ibanez is a solid lefty who has been very consistent at the plate for the past several seasons. While he has declined in the field, moving to the NL and a hitter friendly stadium could outweigh the poor fielding. Ibanez is reportedly looking for a three year deal worth 11-12 million dollars annually, and will probably get it despite being thirty-six years old.

The Mets, Cubs, and Nationals are reportedly interested in Ibanez, who isn't expected to sign until some of the bigger names find new homes.
