The Philadelphia Phillies are open to almost any option that would fill the gaping hole that they have at third base. That almost should not include the recently designated for assignment Chone Figgins. In the old days the Phillies would go after a guy like Figgins and then do a public relations job on their fans as to why they thought he would return to the player he was four years ago. Those days are over and so are the days of Chone Figgins helping a team make the playoffs. Figgins will be 35 in January, has not hit over .190 the past two seasons, and has not had a good season since 2009. Third base help is hard to find, but Chone Figgins is not the answer for the 2013 Philadelphia Phillies.
