Baseball:  Reading between the months



We don't pretend to have any inside knowledge about which player the Phillies' front office may have designated as trade bait, but the handwriting on the wall says rightfielder Bake McBride is the man.

McBride is the only one of the eight starting fielders from last season of whom an action photo is not used to illustrate one of the months of the year.
