Phillies will be sellers

Today it was reported by ESPN's Buster Olney that the Phillies will be sellers at the deadline. He tweeted:
"@Buster_ESPN: PHI has reached out to other teams to let other teams know that players are available, including Michael Young. Cliff Lee not on the list." 
The good news is that Lee will probably stay in town and Ruben is making the smart move by trading veterans for prospects that can help us in the future. But, the team is looking for a total rebuild, if that was the case Cliff Lee would be on the trading block. But, we do not know if fan favorites Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Ruiz are on the block or not. Utley probably will not be traded because of how both sides want to stay in Philly and they are working on a contract extension. Odds are they are on the trading block. But, don't expect a trade today as Ruben has made most of his moves on the 29th. Considering this we could've seen the last of some players in red pinstripes. Especially since the very poor showing the team has given on this road trip.
