The Phils lost again last night and they’re now 12 1/2 games behind the Mets in NL East and 7 out of the last Wild Card playoff spot.
On Audacy’s “Big Time Baseball” podcast, MLB Network insider Jon Heyman said he’d be surprised if the Phils or Braves sold at the August 2 trade dealine:
“I still think the Phillies and the Braves, they’re going to go for it. They’re going to be buyers.
“I can’t imagine either of those teams giving up, it’s too early for that.
“I still believe in that talent there, so I think that they will be going for it.”
