Could the Phillies be sellers?

Jayson Werth The Phillies aren't exactly running away with the National League East as many expected, but could they run away from the division with the results of this week?

A FOX Sports report quotes Philadelphia general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. as saying, "I could be buying and selling."

The Phillies have two more games against the division-leading Braves before a four-game series with the National League Central-leading Reds. At that point, the team could be nearing a decision whether to go for it this season or roll over.

After the All-Star break the Phillies have three games at Wrigley against the Cubs, four at St. Louis, four at home with Colorado, three at home against Arizona and three at the Nationals to lead up to the July 31 trading deadline. That's not exactly murderers' row, but with Chase Utley and Placido Polanco out, it's not exactly the World Champs of a couple of years ago.

If buyers, the Phillies would need at least one player to help make up for the slack of losing Utley and Polanco, plus a big-name starter.

However, the FOX report notes teams know how desperate the Phillies are and are asking for a lot in return for a player such as Ty Wigginton or Miguel Tejada.

If the Phillies decide to sell, Jayson Werth and his beard could be out of Philly. Werth, 31, is a free agent after the season, would be the top bat on the trade market.
