All is well on the field in Florida as Cole Hamels threw three and two-thirds innings of scoreless baseball against the Pirates, but there are questions about Hamels’ long-term standing with the Phils because of his short-term contract.
The lefthander tried to minimize the importance of his agent, John Boggs being in Clearwater yesterday.
“He just comes into town every year about the same time,” Hamels said yesterday. “We’re just going to treat it like a normal spring training for us. I know he’s got to go visit guys . . . He has a few other guys around. It’s not like I’m seeing him every day, every hour. We see him the same sort of time that we usually do, having dinners and enjoying his company.”
“He’ll be here,” Rollins told CSNPhilly.com. “He’s not going anywhere. He was drafted by this organization, raised by this organization and became a superstar in this organization. If you know anything about this organization, that means he’s not going anywhere. “It’s fun to talk about for talk radio and stuff like that. But he’s not going anywhere. That’s my opinion.”
