Diekman and Giles dazzle as Phillies beat Mariners

Cole Hamels lingered in the on-deck circle Wednesday afternoon as Seattle reliever Tom Wilhelmsen tossed four intentional balls to Andres Blanco. The Phillies lefthander knew his uninspired day had ended - Grady Sizemore sidled next to his teammate as a replacement - but Hamels stood his ground. He dangled his bat in disappointment.

Hamels, Phillies beat Mariners 4-3

Perhaps because they’ve been accustomed to playing plenty of bad baseball games over the last two-plus years, the Phillies prevailed and collected their first series win in two weeks.

Game 125, Mariners at Phillies

James Paxton vs. Cole Hamels, 10:05am Wildcard Odds – Fangraphs.com: 42.0%. Baseballprospectus.com: 47.1% Great pitching match-up on getaway day between two pitchers who were the subject of trade rumors this offseason and, a bit less often, before the deadline. I’ve always found it a bit surprising that Hamels has faced 3-4 times more right handed This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

Phillies Notes: Trade rumors continue to swirl around Phils' Hamels

SAN FRANCISCO - The rumors of Cole Hamels' departure will not soon subside. The ace lefthander cannot be traded until November. Whether or not to deal Hamels to replenish a depleted pool of young talent will be the winter's most significant dilemma.

Cole Hamels Coming To Boston In Blockbuster?

Cole Hamels Coming To Boston In Blockbuster?

(Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports)Multiple sources are reporting on the possibility of a "blockbuster" trade between the Red Sox and Phillies that could bring left-hander starter Cole Hamels to Boston. Reports suggest that the Phillies have been unusually active in their scouting of The Carmine Hose—recently covering series in Boston, St. Louis and Anaheim. Ben Cherington would have to send a bevy of young talent to The City of Brotherly Love to consummate such a deal—and Hamels would obviously have to be open to coming to Boston. Hamels is signed for the next four years at the relatively...

Hang with Kershaw for a Mere $2K

We got an email from Gavin Guidry at Jackson Spalding: Adam Wainwright recently started Big League Impact, an organization pairing MLB stars with fans, giving them the opportunity to play together in a fantasy football league while making a difference in their communities.

Currently, this year’s players include Clayton Kershaw, Cole Hamels, Tim Hudson, Freddie Freeman, Max Sherzer, Adam Wainwright, Neil Walker, Justin Masterson and Skip Shumaker. I am touching...

POLL: More Than Three-Quarters Want Lester

Maybe it was last night's 3-hit, complete-game shutout. Anyway, support for the idea of the Red Sox going after former ace Jon Lester in the off-season jumped to more than three in four voters in our latest FenwayNation Poll. As the chart shows, fully 76% now want Boston to pursue Lester, followed distantly by the desire to go after Johnny Cueto (13%). Just 7% want Cole Hamels to be the team's chief starting pitcher target, with 3% naming James Shields. A scant 1% mention a pitcher not on our list of options. you can still vote in the poll HERE.

Cubs unlikely to swing waiver deal with Phillies for Cole Hamels

DENVER — The Cubs appeared far more likely to make their ace pitching splash in the free-agent market sometime over the next two winters than swing a waiver trade for Cole Hamels, despite being granted a waiver claim on the Phillies’ left-hander this week, according to sources. In fact, the Cubs likely made a deal impossible in making the claim, because it assured the ­Phillies would have only a one-team market to shop the three-time All-Star with more than...
