Morosi: Phillies to Offer Cole Hamels $120 Million

The Phillies want to make sure Cole Hamels is wearing red pinstripes for a very long time.

Jon Morosi of FOX, who reported earlier about Shane Victorino, said that the Phillies have a $120 million deal on the table for Hamels.

But Morosi added that some people within the organization aren’t optimistic that Hamels will take the deal, instead setting his sights on free agency.

The Phillies hope to to keep Hamels, but some people within the organization aren’t overly optimistic they can prevent him from going to free agency at this point. Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, who is credited by people in the organization for his ability to lock up the team’s stars to long deals, has said all along he hopes to keep Hamels. Amaro declined comment on the amount of the coming offer to Hamels.

Hamels has said he wants to test free agency but has also said the Phillies are his first choice and he’d love to stay in Philadelphia.
