Report: Phillies "eager" to trade Pence
Ken Rosenthal, FOX Sports, reported this afternoon that the Phillies are "eager" to trade Hunter Pence. Rosenthal says the Phillies OF has had his value increase in the past week due to the re-signing of Carlos Quentin over the weekend. With Pence in control next season, Pence will net you MLB prospects in return. Do you want the Phillies to trade Hunter Pence? We'll find out in 7 days.
Trading Deadline in 1 week
Mike and Todd then talk about the MLB Trading Deadline which is 1 week away at 4 p.m. It felt like the deadline yesterday as 2 trades (involving big names) were made. Todd Ranck wonders what it would symbolize if the Phillies were to deal Pence. He's a 28 year-old All-Star OF that you still have under control next season.

Frank Seravalli talks Weber
Got Flyers beat writer for the Philadelphia Daily News on the phone to talk about the Predators matching the $100M+ offer-sheet for D Shea Weber. Seravalli doesn't know what the next plan would be for the Flyers going forward. No one left on the market will have an impact like Shea Weber would have had. Frank Seravalli covers the Flyers for the Philadelphia Daily News.
NY Post Joel Sherman came out with a report saying the Phillies have "floated" an offer to Cole Hamels for 6 years/$140M. Should that be the final offer Ruben Amaro makes for the left-hander? The offer would make Hamels the second highest pitcher of all time. Some say the MLBPA would like to step in and urge Hamels to hit the free agent market where he could land a 7-year deal. The MLB Trading Deadline is July 31st at 4 p.m. est.
LIVE from CBP
Our Phillies Insider Ryan Petzar called in from Citizens Bank Park before tonight's Phillies vs. Brewers game. The reporters got a chance to catch up with Hunter Pence and ask him about his name in the trade rumors, Pence said: "I dont know anything about it." Petzar said he expects Hamels to re-sign with the Phillies. Follow Ryan Petzar on Twitter.
