It seems inevitable that the Philadelphia Phillies will be trading longtime ace Cole Hamels before the deadline, as the Phillies have the worst record in baseball at 27-53 and desperately need some young building blocks. There aren’t many storylines to sink your teeth into as a Phillies fan other than their current rebuilding process, but Hamels can help accelerate it by reeling...

Report: Cole Hamels now open to all trade possibilities

It sure looks like Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels wants out of dodge. The same day manager Ryne Sandberg abruptly announced his resignation, the All-Star pitcher had some rather interesting comments to share to the media—comments that run contrary to what he had previously indicated. “I have not been approached, Hamels said about accepting a potential trade,” via...

Cole Hamels will not waive his no trade clause for the Houston Astros

Cole Hamels is still a member of the Philadelphia Phillies, and he will remain one until 2019 when his contract ends, unless he is traded.

Cole Hamels pranks media with empty locker and nameplate

Oh, that Cole Hamels! Such a kidder he is. The Phillies left-hander was already scheduled to miss his Friday (June 19) start against the Cardinals due to a mild hamstring strain, and the media probably wanted to talk to him about that.
