It appears the Phillies are hot in pursuit of Josh Hamilton, and timing couldn't be more right.

Hamilton last year had a home run percentage (HR/AB) of .0765, by far the highest of his career and the fifth-best among all major league players with at least 250 at-bats last season. (By comparison, Darin Ruf in his brief stint with the Phillies, had a HR Pct. of .0909 — HRs in 33 ABs.)

Just for the record, Hamilton's postseason numbers do leave something to be desired: .227 batting average,  .295 on-base percentage, .424 slugging percentage, 6 homers in 34 games, during which his teams were 18-16.
