Interested in Cole Hamels? Well, that now means it's time for your to show your cards.
While the non-waiver Trade Deadline is not until 4 p.m. ET on Friday, the Phillies have told teams to have their "best" offers in by Wednesday, ESPN's Jayson Stark reports.
At that point, the Phillies will choose which one of their suitors is the most attractive apparently.
Currently, the organization remains in talks with a number of clubs, including the Dodgers, Rangers, Cubs, Giants, Diamondback, Yankees, Red Sox and even the Astros, who are now apparently in running for the Phillies' ace.
The Phillies seem poised to unload Hamels by Friday's deadline, even going as far as to bump his scheduled start back from Thursday until Friday after the deadline has passed.
Things continue to heat up as the deadline approaches, and one thing is for sure, the Phillies and their fans will be dealing with quite a bit of anxiety over the next few days, which will likely affect the immediate and long term future of the organization.
Hold onto your butts everyone!
