KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino might not be attending or playing in the 2012 All-Star Game, but lots of buzz around Kauffman Stadium has centered on him.

Most baseball executives believe that Victorino will be dealt to the Los Angeles Dodgers or Cincinnati Reds before the July 31 trade deadline regardless of how the Phillies do after the break. On the other hand, those same general managers get the distinct feeling that Phillies GM Ruben Amaro will hold on to left-hander Cole Hamels.
