ESPN MLB Insider Tim Kurkjian Joins Harry Mayes And Nick Kayal

ESPN MLB Insider Tim Kurkjian joined Harry Mayes and Nick Kayal this morning as the MLB trade deadline approaches at 4 pm today. Kurkjian came on and discussed the current state of the Phillies and what they might do at the deadline.

Among the topics Kurkjian discussed were:

• The Red Sox trade of Jon Lester. Kurkjian says the Red Sox had to move Lester where as the Phillies don't have to move Hamels

• Marlon Byrd is the most likely Phillie to be traded

• The time frame for the Phillies rebuild

• Ryan Howard not moving any time soon

• The Phillies are loyal to Ruben Amaro Jr.
