COLE HAMELS NEWS

Remember The Phillies

Ryan Howard was a beast and Chase Utley looked like a Hall of Fame second baseman.  Jimmy Rollins was an MVP candidate.  And they had an epic rotation of Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Roy Oswalt and, uh, Joe Blanton.  But then they replaced Joe Blanton with Cliff Lee!

The curious case of Boston's reported interest in Cole Hamels

But in the case of the Red Sox, who have shown interest in Hamels according to the Boston Globe and others, it's maybe just a littler bit harder to understand. Boston offered its own star lefty Jon Lester $70M over four years in spring training. Now suddenly, they'...
