This year’s Trade Deadline was super duper quiet for the Phillies and like an air horn on acid for the rest of Major League Baseball.
The Phillies surprisingly did nothing at the deadline, meaning starter Jeremy Hellickson is still with the team. Joining the show this week is beat writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News Matt Gelb to talk about what the Phils did... or didn’t do.
But while the Phillies were silent, the rest of Major League Baseball was not. Former Colorado Rockies general manager and MLB Network Analyst Dan O’Dowd joins the show to talk about all the players that did change teams and offers his insight on the Hellickson situation for the Phils.
