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.

Phillies Rumors: Chase Utley getting lots of interest from Giants, Blue Jays

The Philadelphia Phillies are in last place in the National League East, 10.0 games back of the Washington Nationals which means as the trade deadline approaches they should be in full on sale mode.

Vesting Options Killing Phillies Trade Prospects

Outfielder Marlon Byrd has been perhaps the Phillies’ finest offensive contributor not named Chase Utley in 2014. Leading the Phillies in homers and slugging, Byrd, at age 36, has remained healthy for the entire season and is putting up numbers comparable to those he had in his turn-back-the-clock 2013 all while being signed at a reasonable contract.

Struggling Utley Hits Walkoff in 14th

Chase Utley’s epic early season numbers have glided back to earth enough for us to notice, but not really care all that much. That’s because there’s so much else to complain about that it seems silly to ***** about Utley hitting .296 just before the calendar turns to July. On Thursday, Utley hit a walkoff home run in the 14th inning to beat the Miami Marlins – it was his...
