The Multiple Layers Of A Possible Cole Hamels Trade

The biggest name on the MLB trade market is Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels. More than a few teams are interested in his services for the stretch run. However, it’s not farfetched to believe Hamels will still be on the Phillies after the July 31 trade deadline.

Knuckleball’s Paul Lebowitz says there are multiple layers to a possible Hamels trade, including other star pitchers on the market. A deal should be viewed as an “if” not a “when.”

Slapshot’s Robert Mand says Pastrnak could end up being an All-Star-caliber player in Bean Town.
