Phillies vets Rollins, Utley tune out trade talk

Even though the media -- social, mainstream and otherwise -- is a abuzz with the potential for an active trade deadline for the Phillies, the players have been able to ignore most of the chatter. Burrowed into a cocoon where TV and computers are used for watching video on hitting and pitchers, the trade chatter hasn’t filtered into the clubhouse. Or so they say. Though the stands...

Remember when the Phillies were a thing? Ryan Howard was a beast and Chase Utley looked like a Hall of Fame second baseman.  Jimmy Rollins was an MVP candidate.  And they had an epic rotation of Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Roy Oswalt and, uh, Joe Blanton.  But then they replaced Joe Blanton with Cliff Lee!
