Come on, Ron Burke

   In a column today on CSN, Ron Burke argued that the Phillies should keep Cole Hamels and trade Lee and Halladay. I have said that I would agree with keeping Cole, especially if Lee was traded to free up money to get position players as well as future prospects, but to trade both? It would be difficult to have anything close to a decent starting rotation if the Phillies did that. What he doesn’t mention is that both pitchers have partial or full no-trade clauses (I think), so moving one, let alone both, would be difficult. If Halladay can come back strong from his injury, I would consider extending his deal after next year if he is interested.
