Cole Hamels Trade Rumors: Philadelphia Phillies Set To Offer Over $140 Million

Those expecting the Philadelphia Phillies to trade Cole Hamels might wind up slightly disappointed. It was reported earlier in the week that the Phillies were working hard toward and extension with their home grown ace, and it looks like the Phillies may be willing to offer Hamels over $140 million dollars.

This is coming from Bowden, who likes to make up crazy trades that "make sense" for both teams, but information that he reports like this is likely legitimate.

It doesn't appear that the Phillies ever wanted to trade Hamels, and if they do indeed offer him six years at over $140 million, it's likely that Hamels will remain with Philadelphia for years to come.

Of course, this affects the trade market significantly. The price of Zack Greinke, Matt Garza and Ryan Dempster goes up just a touch, though the Texas Rangers aren't rumored to have interest in Dempster.
