If Rowand walks, don't expect them to bring in Torii Hunter or anything. According to a source at Philly.com, he expects the Phillies to move Shane Victorino to center, and platoon Werth and Dobbs in right field. Werth and Dobbs put up good numbers and both are still young. I think Victorino could hold his own in center fielder, but he is no Aaron Rowand. The Phillies would love to keep Rowand, but I see them looking to upgrade pitching and at third base. The Rockies are the most obvious choice because both Brian Fuentes and Garrett Atkins are available. I see the Philles as one of the more proactive teams this offseason, but will probably go through trades more than looking at free agents.
