Phillies | Could be sellers this summer

The Philadelphia Phillies could find themselves in a position to be sellers in the trade market this summer, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. "The way we're playing is unacceptable," Amaro said. "We're always looking to improve the club, but we have to start by doing it in-house. Guys have to play better. There are players with talent here. Sometimes players need to take it upon themselves to perform better." The team would like to avoid paying the luxury tax this year, and they are currently just shy of the $178 million threshold.
