San Diego Padres have agreed to trade for Matt Kemp

The UT is reporting what we've all been rumoring, we're bringing sexy back to the outfield.

No reason to rush into Cole Hamels deal

A few weeks ago, an executive from a team that had spoken with the Phillies about trading for Cole Hamels speculated that Philadelphia’s asking price — a multiplayer package headed by at least two “elite” prospects — would invariably come down later in the offseason.Don’t count on it.
