MLB Trade Deadline 2012: Philadelphia Phillies in Unfamiliar Territory

The Philadelphia Phillies have won the NL East pennant in each of the last five seasons. Last year, they were the only team to win more than 100 games, but in 2012, it looks as though they won’t even win 80.

Philadelphia knew this would be a tough season after Ryan Howard tore his Achilles in the final out of the 2011 NLDS, but the demise of the bullpen and the additional injury to Roy Halladay has thrown the Phillies off the tracks.

The Phillies are currently 11 games back of the NL East-leading Nationals, and nine games back of the NL’s second wild-card spot. 

Their 36-45 record is the sixth worst in the MLB, meaning that for the first time in a long time, the Philadelphia Phillies need to sell at the July 31 deadline.
