Could the latest and great Marlin firesale benefit the Phils?

Interesting enough, the Phillies have inquired about Marlins OF Jeremy Hermida to fill Pat Burrell’s spot in left field.

Again, though, this is another left-handed bat we’re talking about. I’m really pretty curious as to why the Phils are being linked to so many lefties. Utley, Howard, Jenkins, Stairs, and Dobbs are all lefties currently on the roster.

Perhaps the acquisition of a player like Hermida would lead to a trade of one of the latter three?
