Would the Phillies trade for Atlanta's expensive and power-less veteran?

Yes, Cody Asche is working his way back from a strained oblique, and he could be back with the team in...

The Royals and Phillies are two teams who badly need help in right field right now. Could they come see the Braves about possibly acquiring Nick Markakis? In the offseason preceding the 2015 campaign, the Braves signed Nick Markakis to a 4-year, $44 million contract.

The Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly among a few teams interested in veteran outfielder Nick Markakis.
Preseason I was telling anyone that would listen to draft Nick Markakis. I had him ranked as the 35th best outfielder in standard points leagues. While 37 is well outside the top ten, or even twenty, in twelve team leagues that start three outfielders he becomes a borderline starter. Most leagues will start four outfielders, moving Markakis squarely into a starting role. For those...

Nick Markakis was the one player on the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 and 2008 that teams did not want to face at the plate. After a very good rookie campaign in 2006, Markakis became a star in the next two seasons and compiled 11.6 rWAR during those two seasons (10.6 fWAR). In 2013, this same Nick Markakis became one of the least valuable players in baseball with -0.1 WAR on both...
