It’s the latest episode of Phillies Nation TV! Corey and I start off with, what else, Cole Hamels rumors. Will he, or won’t he, stay with the Phils. The deadline is just a week away.
We then play deal or no deal as Ian Riccaboni joins the program to discuss a slew of Phillies who have popped up in rumors.
Then, Natalie is back with reader comments and questions, and Jay Floyd stops by to get into Dom Brown, Tyson Gillies, and Ryne Sandberg.

The Phillies look to sweep the Brewers after back to back comeback victories. The hero of the latest Phils comeback, Carlos Ruiz with his base clearing double. Hunter Pence followed Ruiz with a bloop single to right and Ruiz scored what was the seventh and winning run. Papelbon threw a ten pitch ninth inning to record the save.
Looking alive! The Phillies who have won...

As I wrote over the weekend, third base is an exceptionally thin position. The Phillies are finding that out, again, as Placido Polanco deals with a balky back that has him in the MRI tube. It’s becoming abundantly clear that they’ll have to go in a new, and hopefully younger, direction next season. Ryan Roberts could be the move.
Roberts, 31, won’t be mistaken for Mike Schmidt...

Phillies lock up Cole Hamels with monster extension, sources say.
Despite all the speculation that Cole Hamels would bolt for free agency, or that the Philadelphia Phillies would not be able to afford him, the two sides agreed to a six-year contract extension for $144 million, according to what major-league sources have reported to Ken Rosenthal.
The Phillies are expected to make the official announcement later today.
Rosenthal adds that the...

-Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com says the Phillies are still actively trying to sign Cole Hamels as we’re just over seven days from the July 31 trade deadline.
“They’re trying — actively trying,” a person with knowledge of the situation told CSNPhilly.com on Monday afternoon. “They’re making offers.”
I’ve never doubted...
Cole Hamels is reportedly close to a six-year extension with the Phillies. (Philliedelphia/Kevin Durso)
After winning three straight games in dramatic fashion, maybe things are turning around for the Phillies. One of the big things that say their not sellers: extending Cole Hamels.
The Phillies appear to have done that. After making a six-year offer worth upwards of $140 million...
Roy Halladay returned to Citizens Bank Park for the first time since coming off the disabled list during the Dodgers series. He would face Randy Wolf and the Milwaukee Brewers.
It didn't start out on a good note for Doc. In the first inning, Carlos Gomez was able to score on a double from Aramis Ramirez. Corey Hart later brought home Ramirez with an RBI single, giving the...
This didn't look promising from the sixth inning on, but another burst of offense would lead the Phillies to another comeback win, as crazy as it sounds.
Another rough start to tonight's game led the Brewers to scoring the first run. This happened in the top of the first when Corey Hart singled to score Ryan Braun. Cliff Lee's pitch...
