No Deadline For Hamels Extension

Phillies lefty Cole Hamels has no deadline in contract extension talks, he told reporters today at a press conference.  MLB.com's Todd Zolecki has a transcript.

Asked whether Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee are good contract comparisons, Hamels didn't say much to reveal his asking price in years or salary.  He also didn't give a "yes" or "no" when asked if he'd take less to stay in Philadelphia, replying, "The only way to answer that is I don’t know any better."  When asked whether his agents are currently in negotations with the Phillies, Hamels said, "I know they're supposed to."

The Phillies will have every opportunity to extend Hamels, explained agent John Boggs in January, though not at Jered Weaver money.  Team president David Montgomery expects it to come down to what each side considers an appropriate length.  I imagine Hamels expects at least six guaranteed years, though that's a guess.
