Jamie Moyer is a free agent, but the Phillies lefthander is optimistic he will return to the team next season.

"I hope I am back here," said Moyer, who will turn 46 on Nov. 18. "I sense there is a good feeling that I may come back here. I have not talked to the club at all, but we'll see what happens."

Moyer was 16-7 with a 3.71 ERA during the regular season.

Gordon, Taguchi gone

The Phillies declined the 2009 club options for righthander Tom Gordon and outfielder So Taguchi. They had a $4.5 million option on Gordon but took the $1 million buyout instead. The Phils had a $1.25 million option on Taguchi but took the $125,000 buyout.
