Red Sox In 'Serious' Trade Talks For Hamels

(USAToday Sports)
According to USAToday's Bob Nightengale, the Red Sox are in "serious talks" with the Philadelphia Phillies regarding a trade for ace lefty starter Cole Hamels. Clearly, after signing both Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, Boston needs to fill the two open spots at the top of their pitching rotation. The Red Sox surplus of outfielders and bevy of young prospects could be just enough to pry Hamels away from The City Of Brotherly Love. And, a Hamles trade would not necessarily preclude Boston from still going after Jon Lester. Keep those seatbelts fastened!
