Phils have specific goals for Vegas
Entering Winter Meetings, re-signing Moyer remains priority
PHILADELPHIA -- The next phase of Ruben Amaro Jr.'s accelerated stint as Phillies general manager starts Dec. 8, when representatives from all 30 teams gather for the annual Winter Meetings.Though the Meetings are being held at the Bellagio in Las Vegas from Dec. 8-11, the Phillies don't plan to hit the jackpot. Re-signing starter Jamie Moyer remains a priority, along with continuing the search for a left-field solution should Pat Burrell leave as a free agent. "Pitching wins, and we want to strengthen that," Amaro said on the day he was introduced as general manager. "That's our focus."
"We'll be looking at every possible way to improve our club," he said.
