While the Phillies may be preparing a large offer for Cole Hamels, other teams salivate on the sidelines, hoping that he may be available.  They are also apparently doing their homework for potential trades.  CSNPhilly's Jim Salisbury reports that the Angels, Dodgers, and Rangers are all scouting Cole Hamels' start today in Denver. Further, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman is reporting that Phillies scout Dave Hollins is in New York watching the Angels play the New York Yankees. Another intriguing note from Jim Salisbury: The Dodgers could be scouting Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins.   While Dee Gordon is a firecracker at shortstop for the Dodgers, he is hitting just .229 and injured his thumb sliding into a base.   Additionally, Juan Uribe has been a major disappointment at third base and they would like to upgrade at third base.  When healthy, Gordon initially could slide over to third base for the Dodgers, or they could keep using Uribe.  The Dodgers are close to playoff-...

Hamels Leads Phillies to Series Win Over Rockies

Hamels was Hamels on Sunday. (AP) The Phillies started off their six-game, post-all-star break road trip by winning the opening series against the Rockies. On Sunday, Cole Hamels shut down Colorado, leading the Phillies to a 5-1 victory. It was the first series victory for the Phillies since they beat Colorado at home nearly a month ago – June 19, 20, and 21. HAMELS PROVES WHY...

Billy the Philly Fan Calls Ruben Amaro About Cole Hamels

Billy the Philly Fan is mad! So mad he called the Philadelphia Phillies to give a message to Ruben Amaro. He told them that if the Phillies trade or do not resign Cole Hamels that he would give up his season tickets after over 30 years. He is encouraging every fan to call and tell them the same thing. Together we can influence the Phillies front office to do the right thing and extend...

Yankees to Monitor the Cole Hamels Situation

Here's what Ken Davidoff had to say about the Yankees potential interest in Cole Hamels:The short answer is yes, the Yankees absolutely will be in the loop as the shockingly horrid Phillies field offers for Hamels while also trying to re-sign him. Yet you shouldn’t expect the Yankees to go as hard after Hamels as they did Lee, and that has nothing to do with Hamels and everything...

Cole Hamels Mans The Hill In An Effort For Series Win Against Rox

The Phillies finally pulled a win out of their behinds last night, taking the second game 8-5. Vance Worley got the win, his fifth of the season after tossing 6 2/3 strong innings while raking in two runs of his own from an RBI double. So the Phils pitchers can hit now? He's no Cliff Lee, but it's still cool. He also took a tumble in his first at-bat, which was actually his...

Philadelphia Phillies: 2012 ERA for the NL East at game 90

Pitching deep into almost every game, Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies is among the best.  How does Miami compare after their ace has worked?  The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my daily coverage. TAL’S HANDY STATS   WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I am alternating a game-day 2012 ERA For The NL East and a 2012 ERA For The MLB 5. See link section below. In each publication, the...

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Howling deadline wolves

The vultures with their equipment were there to rate Cole Hamels and the other stars of the Philadelphia Phillies.  Do you know why Rube Amaro waited until now before increasing his re-signing efforts for his youngest ace? TAL’S HANDY CAPS   WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish after every battle that is not washed out.  I will have many season-long highlights of puzzle pieces...

Phillies preparing a $120 million offer to Cole Hamels- Apparently he wants more

Today is one of those days when I woke up from the wrong side of the bed and unfortunately Cole Hamels is going to pay for it. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports, the Phillies are preparing a $120 million offer to Hamels, but apparently they aren't optimistic they can prevent him from becoming a free agent. A person with Phillies ties close to Heyman believes that a Cliff Lee...

Phils Win Series, Hamels Earns 11th Victory of the Season

Final: Phillies 5, Rockies 1. WP: Cole Hamels (11-4, 3.07 ERA) LP: Drew Pomeranz (1-4, 3.79 ERA) One at a time. If the Phillies keep that motto in their heads and produce on the field, getting a spot in the 2012 postseason will start to get more likely to achieve. Cole Hamels lasted eight strong innings, allowing just one run, as the Phillies offense clicked against 23 year-old Drew...

A Hypothetical Nationals Trade For Cole Hamels

After a lot of banter about what Cole Hamels might fetch in trade, it was reported earlier today that the Phillies are preparing a “major offer” in an attempt to retain him past this season. It was also reported that the Nationals might be relatively quiet at the trade deadline, given that they have few holes to fill. And that’s true, if Stephen Strasburg doesn’t get shut...

Expect some movement before trade deadline

On baseballs midsummer marketplace, there is no Big Board to tell us the value of Cole Hamels or Matt Garza. General managers arent crammed together on a trading floor, like at the New York Stock Exchange, although that would be highly entertaining. (I want to see Jon Daniels and Jerry Dipoto, of the rival Rangers and Angels respectively, working feverishly to acquire Zack Greinke...

Can the Phillies Save Themselves?

There is a lot of chatter and trade rumors creeping around the Phillies right now. Who will stay and who will go? And, do they even have any real choices here? One of the predominant theories says that if the Phillies make a strong run in the 2nd half, they may be able to keep guys like Cole Hamels and Shane Victorino. But to do so would mean winning a LOT of games. Last night...

Phillies Post All-Star Break Baseball Starts on a Sour Note

If anyone was really hoping that the second half of the season was going to be a positive turning point for the Phillies, all hopes were dashed quickly after a depressing 6-2 loss to the Rockies last night. But it really only took 1 at-bat to see that things were still not going well, as lead-off hitter Jimmy Rollins popped out to start the game. Did you know that Rollins is in 5th...
