According to a source reporting to CSNNE.com's Sean McAdam, the Red Sox are showing "no sense of urgency" to make a trade for lefty ace Cole Hamels.

Cole Hamels trade needs to happen soon

Cole Hamels – Photo Credit – Keith Allison The Philadelphia Phillies did not know that 2011 would be their final season as a “good” team. If you remember correctly, they won 102 games that year — easily the best record in the majors — but wound up losing in five games in the divisional series to the eventual World Series champs, the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s been all...

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. The pair conjured memories of Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker and are at...

2015 season preview: Philadelphia Phillies

Six years after their last World Series appearance and seven years after they won it, the Phillies are now languishing in the basement of not just the NL East, but all of baseball. Bad contracts, a lack of minor league talent translating to the Majors and a cascade of injuries have combined to make the last few seasons in the City of Brotherly Love sad indeed. However, even with...

Cole Hamels knows this as well, and expressed his desire to win in an interview with USA TODAY last Wednesday.

Spring Training preview for Philadelphia Phillies tickets

Ryne Sandberg begins his second season managing the Philadelphia Phillies with little hopes of success heading into the season. After a disappointing 2013, the Phillies tried to “reload” rather than “rebuild” and misfired.

Why I Might Rather Trade for Cliff Lee

All winter, the focus on the Phillies has centered on Cole Hamels. He’s their best player, they’re an obvious seller, and the remainder of his contract is a bit of a discount relative to the current market price for frontline starting pitchers. Of course, those last two factors also mean that the Phillies asking price […]
