Found July 10, 2012 on Phillies Nation:
The latest edition of PN TV looks at the Cole Hamels trade possibilities and the likelihood he stays in Philadelphia. Some good quotes from a one-on-one with CSNPhilly that we discuss. Also, is there even a market for Shane Victorino? His down year has to be scaring off trade suitors. We also give grades for the bullpen, offense, and starting pitching as we’ve hit the midway point of the season. Natalie Egenolf is back with some comments and questions, too. Enjoy!

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Is Hamels in retooling plans?

Cole Hamels is the top priority for the Philadelphia Phillies, including any direction they take.  And, remember, Rube Amaro has done his due diligence to re-up the other stars of this championship-oriented core.  Do you ink Jimmy Rollins to his favorable agreement with your stud lefty in his walk year? TAL’S HANDY CAPS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish after every battle...

Dodgers Looking To Reunite With Shane Victorino?

Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino appears to be on his way out of Philadelphia, according to a report by Jon Heyman this afternoon. Dylan Hernandez is disagreeing, according to his latest tweet. Hernandez says the Dodgers are still looking for a corner infielder, starting pitching, and a left-handed reliever.  Heyman adds that people familiar with the situation have suggested...

Philadelphia Phillies: Cole Hamels Open to Being Traded

The Philadelphia Phillies are in the middle of a horrible season and they have to be happy the first half has mercifully come to a close. The Phillies enter the All-Star break with a 37-50 record and are a whopping 14 games back of the Washington Nationals for first place in the National League East. As a result the Phillies are likely to be sellers in the second half of the season...

Cole Hamels Could See Himself a ‘Phillie Forever’

If the story of the year for the Phillies has been their sudden and rapid fall from grace in the NL East, then the second big story has been what to do with Cole Hamels. So far in the saga of Cole, we have heard that he will leave the Phillies to go to the Dodgers once he hits free agency. We have heard...

Moving Cole Hamels Could Save the Phillies Next Season

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. After 87 games the Phillies are 14 games back and 16 in the loss column to Washington. For any shot at a wildcard, the Fightin’s will need to finish the season 55-20. Take these numbers and then take a hard look at the players we have...

Cole Hamels Talks Future With CSN's Leslie Gudel

(Photo: Philliedelphia/Steve Trapani) If you haven't read this interview between CSN's Leslie Gudel and Phillies lefthander Cole Hamels, please do so. It's a great interview and an in-depth look on what Cole Hamels is thinking of this whole situation involving his future with this team. In the interview, Hamels opens up to Gudel about his feelings on this season and...

Can The Dodgers Bring Cole Hamels Home?

Yesterday, I mentioned a report by Jon Heyman, of the Dodgers being interested in Shane Victorino. This rumor was quickly debunked by Dylan Hernandez, so I don't think there is much to worry about here. Obviously it makes sense for the Dodgers to take a look at every opportunity that could help the team. I have already said multiple times, an outfielder could definitely...

What to do with Cole Hamels

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.

What Greinke or Hamels Would Yield in a Trade

With the Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies 6.0 and 10.0 games out, respectively, of the second wild-card spot in the National League, it’s probable that one or both teams will trade their front-line, free-agent-to-be starters — i.e. Zack Greinke and Cole Hamels — before the July 31st trade deadline. “What might either be worth in terms of a trade?” is a question...

Sellers: The Market For Shane Victorino

I want to start by making mention of something: Shane Victorino has been a really good Phillie. He is not a Hall-of-Famer, sure, but he was a major, major part of the best run in team history. He was an almost symbolic part of them bullying the Mets out of the way, and taking over the NL East for five years running. He made a couple of All-Star Games. He hit huge home runs off of...

Phillies Jonathan Papelbon and Jimmy Rollins to Ruben Amaro: Don't Trade Hamels

Photo: Philliedelphia/Kevin Durso It's not uncommon that you hear of other players speaking about their teammates after being traded. What is uncommon is hearing other players speaking about their teammates before being traded. According to Todd Zolecki, a few players who spoke to reporters yesterday mentioned the recent rumors of their teammate Cole Hamels being potentially...
