Found July 03, 2012 on Phillies Nation:
On the latest edition of Phillies Nation TV, there was plenty to discuss. Corey and I jump right into our thoughts on the Cole Hamels situation and if he will be dealt. We look back at a dismal go for the Phillies over the weekend and the trades that were made; Jim Thome to Baltimore and Chad Qualls to the Yankees. There are great reader comments and questions we answer pertaining to the bullpen and other players you’d like to have in Phillies pinstripes. And we talk about the Ryan Howard rehab process and when he could return. Lots to talk about on PN TV!

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?
