This is not one of those rumors where there is a demonstrated link between the Phillies and Melky Cabrera. This one comes from a New York Post column by Joel Sherman, which essentially looks at Melky Cabrera and whether or not he might be a fit for the New York Yankees or New York Mets. It does, however, bring to mind whether or not Cabrera might be a fit.
Here is what he had to say about Cabrera and the Phillies, reflecting on what he heard from executive:
The Mets were one club that came up regularly as a potential landing spot for Cabrera, as were the outfield-needy Phillies.
So, it's essentially speculation.
For many Phillies fans, the reaction is one that says, "Well, if he is cheap, I'll give him a shot..." But, he may not be. One thing Sherman does in the piece is look into what Cabrera might cost to sign. Here is what he was able to get from various baseball excutives:
After the All-Star Game, there was talk Cabrera, a 2...
BEST OF MAXIM
Timothy Burke, the video and screen-grab genius over at Deadspin, somehow caught this gem of a screenshot. The image features CSN Bay Area interviewing Matt Cain following the San Francisco Giants World Series sweep, while Ryan Theriot is in the background using the urinal to relieve himself. Not much else needs to be said here.

The Giants' championship formula is a familiar one, just with new faces two years later.
Stellar starting pitching was backed by a shut-down bullpen, a late-season surge and a manager making all the right moves.
San Francisco captured its second World Series title in three seasons with a stunning sweep of the Tigers, and only catcher Buster Posey was in the lineup for the Game...
Giants catcher Buster Posey had a two run home run down the left field line at Comerica Park during Game 4 of World Series. This lucky fan was right in the line of the hit and unfortunately for his face, misjudged the path of the ball. I’m sure next time this guy will remember to bring his glove.
The MVP - Most Valuable Panda - sat in the interview room and smiled.
A trophy, another World Series ring and the best nickname in baseball all were his.
Pablo Sandoval, the Kung Fu Panda, was voted World Series MVP following the San Francisco Giants' sweep of Detroit. He hit .500 with three home runs, a double and four RBIs in 16 Series at-bats.

It's over, and it's done. The 2012 MLB season is in the books, and the San Francisco Giants are World Champions.
-Giants 4, Tigers 3 (ten innings)
Well, where do we go from here? The offseason is now officially upon us, and before we go fully into offseason mode, we're going to reflect on the Giants World Series victory, with five observations from the series...
Thank God we didn't have to play the Giants. It would have taken them two games to sweep us in four. We wouldn't have gotten a hit - not one - and the Giants would still be batting in game two. The lead would be something like 104 to 0, and Nick Swisher would be pitching for us. Girardi would still be keeping A-Rod on the bench - resting him for the critical moment - and...
Detroit, MI - FOX' New Girl, Zooey Deschanel, will sing the Star-Spangled Banner before game 3 of the World Series tonight at Detroit's Comerica Park.

Tiger Hitters, Not Looking Spry
10) If you are not a Tiger or Giant fan, and are still watching this series, you are, well, me9) This game has 2 runs and 12 hits, and since both of them happened in the second inning, so if didn't tune in early, you really didn't need to tune in at all8) As the Tigers are the first AL team since 1919 to suffer back to back World Series shutouts...
And so the hot stove season begins. I usually spend it reading books, watching movies, and old games to feed my rather ridiculous addiction to the great sport of baseball. It's also a time to discuss signings and possible trades. So let's look at my rather controversial shopping list.
1. Melky Cabrera
Let me start by saying I'm not a sports moralist. I want Pete Rose...
