Besides, the price is apparently right.

It is not yet known exactly how Cole Hamels will fit in on the Cubs pitching staff, but with Tyler Chatwood's continued control issues and Yu Darvish's health a major question mark, Hamels gives the Cubs another option in the rotation with plenty of experience in a pennant chase and the postseason.

She expressed interest in talking to Jarrett, or perhaps working out a way to find a "teachable moment" in an encounter with her. During her conversation with Sean Hannity , the comedienne reasserted her view that her tweet was about politics, not race.

Hamels threw a no-hitter against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on July 25, 2015. The Cubs, however, don't appear to be discussing the possibility of taking on all of that almost $14MM commitment. The Cubs have about $14MM of breathing room beneath the $197MM luxury tax threshold, so taking on roughly $4MM of Hamels' remaining salary would allow them to supplement their rotation while leaving some room for additional acquisitions between now and the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

It's worth noting that 16 of his 23 home runs allowed have come at home - that despite throwing almost the same amount of innings. For his career, Hamels, a four-time all-star, is 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA in October and was the most valuable player of both the NL Championship Series and World Series in 2008 as the ace of the Phillies. He has a 4.95 ERA and a 1.3 record in eight starts this season. He's a great competitor, got good stuff.

Rather, Sherman further tweets that they'd pick up about $4MM of his deal and send secondary prospects to the Rangers in return. Butler, 27, has played in parts of five seasons in the bigs, never having much success. He was activated from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday after being sidelined by a right groin strain.
