The Philadelphia Phillies trading Cole Hamels may be a necessary evil. I’ve said all along that there is value in a 28 year old left hander with his best days ahead of him. I just didn’t think that value would...

Bucs must deal for Greinke or Hamels

The 2012 Pirates are not unlike the 2008 Brewers, trying to end a long drought, trying to win over a skeptical city. What did those Brewers do?
