O's Now In On Lester; LAD Moving To Hamels?

Multiple reports on suggest that the Baltimore Orioles are now expressing interest in trading for Red Sox ace Jon Lester. While previous reports had the lefty going to the Dodgers, the latest word is that the Denizens Of Chavez Ravine are turning their attention to the Phillies and Cole Hamels. The reasons given for the switch are: A.) Boston is not that interested in being saddled with Matt Kemp and his contract and B.) Hamels is signed through 2018 (as opposed to Lester who could be just a three-month rental). Look for these twists and turns to intensify as Thursday's Trade Deadline draws closer.
