The Phillies made a move for a starting pitcher in Joe Blanton at the All-Star break, and they have evaluated the market for relievers. But with 30 minutes remaining before the deadline, it did not appear the Phillies would land a reliever; it was more likely the deadline would come and go without the Phillies making a trade, sources said. Of course, that could change with a single phone call.
