My thoughts are that in order to trade that big contract he would have be performing well as a closer and the team buying would likely use him as a closer. If he is performing poorly to be put in an 8th inning role I don't think he would be traded unless the phillies eat a ton some salary, but I can't see that happening.
I can understand holding off on closers though, just curious what people think of him comparatively.
