08:15 AM ET 04.10 | Much of what ails the Phillies can be summed up thusly: Roy Halladay ranks second on the team in batting average. This may be the greatest danger of losing [Cole Hamels], the sense of a team in decline. Some reports speculate that he wants 7 years in his next contract, but he very clearly wants to win, too. He cares far more about that than the color or design of any uniform or the climate of any town, and that includes those located in Southern California. You want to be scared, here's a better way to scare you: His father is from South Boston. ... Earlier this spring Hamels complained, jokingly, that any time he gets a bunch of tickets when the Phillies play up there, his guests arrive in Red Sox hats and gear.

I think I may have been a trifle loud in my greeting as well.

QUOTE(#7):

So clem ... what do you think of Hamels coming to Boston?

Camels in Boston? One hump or two?

But seriously. 7 years? Might be a little long to commit to.
