Phillies trade Qualls to Yankees
Also, Jon Heyman has reported that the Phillies are heavily calling teams to gauge interest in LHP Cole Hamels. Hamels is having a sensational year and the Phillies want the farm for him. I don't see the Yankees making a move unless they are confident they can re-sign him at the end of the season. It's beginning to look like the Phillies are in full selling mode after losing their fifth straight game today. They traded Jim Thome to the Orioles yesterday. Their season record is now 36-45 and they have not even gotten Howard back yet.
