Storyline A (at least here): One less veteran catcher on the market

Storyline B: WHAT THE **** ARE THE PHILLIES DOING!?!?!?!
The Phillies are a symptom, not the cause. Revenues in baseball are so high with television deals now that they have to send the extra money somewhere. Since it's not going to go to a significantly less expensive fan experience, the agents know that extra revenue is there and they're going to hold out for it. The Phillies are just quicker to dish it out. But this is the new market.
