Twitter Poll: Who Lands Cole Hamels?

The Philadelphia Phillies have told teams to have their best offers in today if they wish to acquire left-handed starter Cole Hamels. Hamels starts tomorrow, whether that start comes for the Philadelphia Phillies or not remains to be seen, and the team would like to move him before that start if possible. There are many teams in the mix for Hamels including the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Texas Rangers, the Houston Astros and the New York Yankees to name a few but who will ultimately land Hamels when it’s all said and done is yet to be determined. This sounds like all the makings of a Twitter poll if you ask me.

Personally I can see a team like the Boston Red Sox building for 2016 and acquiring Hamels in the old “keep him away from the Yankees” line of thinking. Boston has the pieces to make a move and I don’t like picking the “obvious” choices like the Dodgers or the Rangers simply because it feels like a cop out. Honestly the Phillies could decide to hold onto Hamels, although they likely will trade him, and wait until the offseason when the competition is much stiffer and the pool of “contenders” is larger. Who knows, stay tuned because this should come to an end any minute now.
