View image | My goal here is to convince you that the Pirates are the perfect trade partner for the Phillies, in Ruben Amaro's apparent quest to unload Ace-of-Staff Cole Hamels. It's just going to take a while to get there. Stick with me. Deep breath... I had a...

Cole Hamels: Weekly Pitcher’s Spotlight

This week’s spotlight is on the Philadelphia Phillies’ Cole Hamels. Hamels was among the group of starting pitchers to get two starts during the first week of the 2015 season. Unfortunately for the left-hander, Hamels was the recipient of very little support and stands with a 0-1 record after week one.

While the Phillies’ terrible team play and attempts to trade some of their major contributors is obviously not a recipe for success, but I believe they will “shoot for the moon” and pull a full-on Sam Hinkie (shout out to Sixers fans that are still hanging in there). They are...

Cole Hamels wants the Phillies to trade him

It’s not a secret that the Philadelphia Phillies are in the beginning stages of what appears to be a long-term rebuilding plan.

Reports: Red Sox, Phillies have discussed Cole Hamels trade

If the Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies never execute a trade involving Cole Hamels, it won’t be because the sides never explored the possibility.     The Red Sox and Phillies have at least discussed Hamels, according to multiple reports. It doesn’t sound like a deal is close, though, meaning Boston could begin the season with its current rotation. The Boston Globe’s...
