No Movement In Cole Hamels Talks

There has been no movement on the Phillies' part to restart contract extension talks with Cole Hamels, reports Jon Heyman of (on Twitter). It's unclear if they're loading up to make a big offer or have been spooked by his asking price.

Last week we heard that the two sides hadn't had talks in 30 days. The Phillies offered their 28-year-old left-hander Jered Weaver money (five years, $85MM), but Matt Cain's extension with the Giants (five years, $112.5MM) raised the bar. With Cain locked up, Hamels will be the premier free agent pitcher if the hits the open market after the season.
