Money getting tight in Philly, Detroit

CBSSports.com senior writer Danny Knobler is cruising the bar area at the hotel here at the Winter Meetings (that's coffee in his cup, I swear!) and here's a little bit of what he's hearing:

Kyle Kendrick • The Phillies are listening to offers for starter Kyle Kendrick (pictured), who could interest several teams. The top of their rotation is set, and they don't think they can move Joe Blanton, so that means Kendrick could bring something in return.

• The Phillies are looking for a right-handed platoon guy to split time with Domonic Brown in right, but they don't want to spend a whole lot of money. That's where Jeff Francoeur may fit in. The team doesn't have a whole lot of money left to spend, and could be looking for someone to be "the next Jayson Werth." It's a nice theory, at least.

• The Tigers would love to bring back Magglio Ordonez, but aren't sure they can afford him. They're selling pizzas for just $5, so money is getting tight in Detroit.

You obviously have no clue regarding the Illitch family.  You should be selling pizza, not commenting about baseball.
