The Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox have long been mentioned as a potential match for a Cole Hamels trade.

Game 34: Phillies 3 Pirates 2

This is pretty much the pre-game worst-case scenario that I was afraid of when I wrote about Liriano not quite being up to snuff lately. It’s not that a seven-inning, six-strikeout, three-walk, three-run performance is bad, just that it’s not good enough when your offense hands you a 2-0 lead against Cole Hamels and the worst offense in baseball. Liriano was decent last night...
