Until the final day before the trade deadline, nobody really knew if the Philadelphia Phillies were going to be buyers or sellers.
On one hand, the Phillies have become a very proud franchise that definitely did not want to admit defeat, but on the other hand, they were looking defeat right in the face for most of this season.
As you definitely know by now, the Phillies did make a lot of big decisions, but did they make good deals? That is what we're going to look at right now.
I am giving "at the trade deadline" a very loose definition, meaning during July.
The only reason I am doing that is because those moves were inevitable anyway, but the right package came along before the actual deadline.
