• The Phillies demands for Cole Hamels arecute

    While I was out of power, multiple outlets reported that the Phillies have begun shopping Cole Hamels around the league as we approach the non-waiver trade deadline at the end of this month. Though its easy to see why the Phillies are begin to think of selling, what with being stuck in last place at nine games below .500 entering play today and, in just the second year of The Greatest Rotation Ever era having already been replaced as the most universally overrated team in baseball by the Rangers, Ruben Amaro Jr. is apparently holding out hope that Hamels can be extended and, via Buster Olney, is asking a kings ransom for Hamels at the moment.
