We've been hearing the trade rumors for weeks now; the Philadelphia Phillies will trade Cole Hamels. The Phillies will trade Shane Victorino. The Phillies will trade their entire roster and rebuild completely from scratch.
Okay, so that last one was a bit of an exaggeration, but the point is that the Phillies are in a position to be sellers at the trade deadline.
One name that hasn't been thrown around that much is Cliff Lee. The 33-year-old former Cy Young Award winner would be a great addition for any of the 20-plus teams that have a legitimate chance of making the postseason.
Lee is owed $25 million in each of the next three years which may scare some teams away from trading for him, but he could be the difference between a team missing the playoffs and winning the World Series.
