There's been quite a bit of chatter on talk radio and social media about the possibility of a Jose Bautista trade this off-season.

On Tuesday night, that talk progressed to another level following a tweet out of Philadelphia.

Fox reporter Howard Eskin tweeted the Phillies are in serious talks with the Blue Jays about acquiring Bautista.

Eskin said the Phillies would send 26-year-old outfielder Domonic Brown to Toronto as part of a package to land Bautista.
