It’s no surprise that the Philadelphia Phillies have been a mess in 2012. It’s also not a surprise that Cole Hamels is could be out of the City of Brotherly Love. Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, on the other hand, has been showing Hamels some brotherly love. The two had their lockers together for the All-Star game and told Hamels a very endearing statement.

“You’d look good in Dodger blue”
Kershaw continued to praise Hamel’s ability and the impact he could have for the Dodgers.
“I would love to have him there,” says the Dodgers ace. “Our whole team would love to have a guy of his caliber. I hope we make a run at him.”
We at Sports-Kings aren’t fashion experts, but what we do know is that such addition would be huge for L.A. The Dodgers are second in the NL in team ERA with 3.33 and a another quality pitcher would be just what L.A. needs to pull away from the Giants in the NL West.
Since the beginning of the year, reports and speculations have stated that Hamels could be moved. But despite the distractions, Hamels is 10-4 with a 3.20 ERA and 118 strikeouts. Will he be moved by the trade deadline? If so, where will he go? No one knows. But one does know that the addition of a former World Series MVP will be greatly improve a club. Stay tuned.
Despite Philadelphia’s woes, Hamels is 10-4 with a 3.20 ERA and 118 strikeouts.

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark (@jaysonst), the Phillies are preparing to offer left hander Cole Hamels a huge contract. Hamels, 28, is a soon-to-be-free-agent come this offseason and is going to be the hottest free agent on the market. Unless the Phillies can lock him up.

The end his here. If we the Phillies fans want to admit it or not, the chances of our beloved team getting into the playoffs would take a miracle.

The Phillies bad season has led to some interesting dilemmas. Not the least of which is what to do with Cole Hamels, who is heading toward free agency at the end of the season.
In the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of rumors surrounding left handed pitcher Cole Hamels. It's been said that the Phillies, in case they become sellers, could deal him as long as they can't sign him to a long-term deal.
Yesterday, Jayson Stark of ESPN.com said that the Phillies are preparing a “substantial offer” to Hamels to see if they can sign him in...
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...
The Brewers are willing to offer Zack Greinke around $100 million over 5 years while the Phillies are prepared to offer Cole Hamels an equally large contract extension. Greinke and Hamels were likely going to be the two best starters available at the deadline if their respective teams made them available.
My first thought was that this was potentially good news for the Cubs who...
