The Phillies after managing to “surge” to the plus side in the win column quickly showed us in Milwaukee they are sellers. Managing only one run in yesterdays loss and lets face it, without Dom Brown and Cliff Lee it would already be long over.
Who will or should the Phillies be moving? Once or if Chase Utley is healthy he should be moved immediately as it is highly unlikely he will be signed again next season. As many rumors fly in regards to Cliff Lee (Texas being one) I for one would hate to see him go. With that said, he could certainly bring us some talent. Papelbon another rumored to be moving before or at the deadline, well they aren’t too many games to save are there? Another Phillie’s that NEEDs to go, Delmon Young and Lance Nix, figure on a bag of used balls and a water cooler.
Sadly the Phillies have little to offer in trade, Chooch a possibility when again healthy the last of any players that could fetch much of anything in minor league talent. It is officially over, despite what the standings say.Similar Posts:
