PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Cole Hamels signed a one-year, $15 million extension that will keep him in a Phillies uniform for the 2012 season.
This is what people are saying about what the deal means for 2012 and beyond.
Matt Snyder of CBS Sports says that Cole Hamels could be in line for a hundred million dollar deal.
Seth Everett and Matt Leon of KYW News Radio talk about what this means for the future of Hamels with the Phillies.
Pat Gallen of Phillies Nation says that the Hamels situation could get dicey if they don’t sign a long term extension before the season begins.
Michael Baumann of Crashburn Alley writes that getting Hamels at a relative bargain for this season is fool’s gold.
The Good Phight says that the Hamels deal should be perceived as a sign of good faith.
Hamels’ agent, John Boggs, said that Hamels is going to be looking for a huge deal after this year.
Opposing Views suggests that the deal might cost Tim Lincecum a lot of money.
