Josh Hamilton in Red Pinstripes?
I seriously doubt it. But Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies have been “quietly checking in” on Hamilton. This is probably just the Phillies doing their “due diligence”. Just like the trade deadline, there will be a lot of rumors and such out there. I must say the winter is so much more entertaining now than when the Phillies had no shot of signing anyone of significance, like back in all of the 1990s. I distinctly remember the Phillies trying to get Bobby Bonilla one year, but he went to the Mets. That was a big deal back then.
