COLE HAMELS RAFFLE TOMORROW
The Phillies have announced to teams that if they are gonna make an offer, make it a good one and make it tomorrow...especially if you want Cole Hamels.
According to ESPN, "The Philadelphia Phillies have told several teams interested in acquiring Cole Hamels that they'd like to get their "best" offers by Wednesday...The team would then make a decision about where -- and whether -- to trade him."
The teams that have been in contact with the Phils are several, the Dodgers, the Giants, the Astros as of recently and the Yankees are out there as well, but the biggest problem Cashman has right now is not being too tempted to flip one of our 3 Golden boys for Hamels.
Doing that would be career suicide for Cashman. He knows this. Fans will be all over him if we trade a guy like Aaron Judge for a dude with mileage on his arm like Hamels.
That being said, the Yankees could use 1 pitcher, probably a starter. I don't know why, and I'll make sure to make some calls on this, but I feel like 2 guys, David Price or James Shields are the guys the Yankees are eyeing. I don't think there is a serious Hamels run for the Yanks. Then again, I never claimed to be a baseball insider.
If anything new comes out on Hamels, we will surely tell you.
