Philadelphia Phillies would be wise to trade for Miami Marlins Christian Yelich

With the MLB's worst record, the Philadelphia Phillies could use the services of Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich. The 25-year-old has a .284 average, 44 RBIs, and eight homers.

It was another wild affair for the Phillies and Giants on Sunday. The Phillies had Jeremy Hellickson on the bump and southpaw Matt Moore went to work for the Giants.
