Does Moncada’s Decision Improve the Odds of a Hamels’ Trade?

Over most of the last 12 seasons, Phillies fans have been spoiled by the consistency of having a pair of All-Stars up the middle. The descriptive phrase “All-Stars” is used quite literally in the last statement. In fact, it is much closer to “all-timers” in respect to their place in franchise history.
