Victorino First To Go?
MLBtraderumors is reporting that one executive has said that Victorino will be the first big name to be traded before the deadline. It also states that the Yankees could be that team. They also cite Ken Rosenthal reporting that the Phillies could trade Rollins but his contract could be a problem, as one executive said: “That contract, boy oh boy”. The idea of trading Rollins was suggested a few days ago by a Philadelphia writer, as I blogged about below. If I was RAJ I may look into that. Obviously I write this far removed from the clubhouse, but I wonder if Rollins has gotten a little complacent.
