Should Phillies pursue Randy Wolf?

The Phillies have been reported to have interest in a couple pitchers, A.J. Burnett and Derek Lowe. How deep is the interest? That is a good question. One pitcher that may be available as well is the old Phillies pitcher, Randy Wolf who just finished last season with the Houston Astros.

Wolf pitched for the Houston Astros last season coming over from the Padres and did really well for them going 6-2 in 12 starts for the 'Stros with a 3.57 era. He finished 2008 with a 12-12 record. Houston is interested in Wolf, but as of yet, no ink is dry on his deal so he is still a free agent. Wolf is trying to get a better deal than Houston is willing to offer. Should the Phillies be interested in Wolf?
