PHILS MAY WANT GERRIT COLE, MAY HAVE TO SETTLE FOR COLE HAMELS!

Take one look at the Nationals, who swept the Cards last night in the NLCS and are going to their first World Series since 1933, and you realize how important pitching is.

Let’s hope the Phils’ top management has gotten the message.

Here’s what Todd Zolecki of MLB.com says:

Gerrit Cole will be the biggest stud pitcher available, but there will be plenty of competition for him.

USA TODAY quoted a few of Cole’s teammates and they bet that he will sign with a West Coast team. If that is his preference, then Cole will be out of the Phillies’ reach.

Zack Wheeler and Madison Bumgarner are interesting possibilities. I’m curious to see if the Phillies have any interest in Cole Hamels. He struggled at the end of the season, but he still lives in the area and if the price is right he could provide depth.

It also might help to have at least one former Phillie in the clubhouse to provide perspective when things get tough, i.e. “I know we’re upset at the fans, but let’s not call them entitled as we enter the stretch run and need their support.”
