But at what expense? Yup... Yankee prospects.
According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe:
"According to one Phillies source, the Yankees have come the closest
to landing Hamels, offering a package of prospects that at least has
given the Phillies a baseline for future talks.
Hamels, who pitched two strong innings in his spring training
debut Friday against the Yankees, has stopped talking about a trade. He
said before camp that he was looking forward to pitching for a contender
again, and that he would welcome a deal to Boston."
The Sox have made offer too. Here's the question. Seeing what our kids have done this spring... would you offer up a prospect package for Cole Hamels? No word on who those prospects are, but would you? OR... do you let Boston make a deal and we role the dice. I'm not sure I like any of this.
We'll keep this story updated as often as possible here on BYB. Great nugget from Cafardo.
