“You’ve got at least three players that obviously won’t be here next year that you would like to trade. That’s no secret,” Eskin said to Matt Klentak on Saturday, according to the Inky. “How much pressure is there to make sure that that happens, and that maybe you won’t get what you want?”

“I don’t feel pressure to make a move just for the sake of making a move,” Klentak explained. “But we’re certainly looking for an opportunity to make good decisions for the Phillies.”

“[Jeremy] Hendrickson won’t be here, [Pat] Neshek won’t be here, and Howie Kendricks won’t be here,” Eskin speculated. “So the winter meetings won’t do you any good for those players, right?”

“That’s not what I mean at all,” Klentak shot back. “I just think there are certain times of years where there is a spike of activity.”

But a microphone picks him up mocking Eskin under his breath and rolling his eyes, saying, “That’s a ridiculous question.”
