Rangers notebook: Cole Hamels a prime candidate to be AL's starting pitcher in the All-Star Game

Yankees lose Beltran and get shut down by Hamels in a 7-1 loss to the Rangers

I don’t know to make this one sound any better than it was beside saying “At least there wasn’t any three-hour rain delay tonight!” (poor Mike). Okay, back to the sadness. Yankees ran into one of the hottest pitchers in AL in the month of June and lost their best hitter from the very start. Sabathia pitched well but everything pretty much fell apart in the eighth to make...

Where Did Cole Hamels’ Changeup Go?

If you know one thing about Cole Hamels beyond his profession or employer, it’s likely the fact that he throws a magnificent changeup. It’s the pitch upon which Hamels’ impressive career has been built from the moment he made his major-league debut as a 22-year-old kid.

Hamels suing over Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show scam

According to the New York Daily News, Hamels is suing London-based promotion company Cornucopia Events over services he claims he never received. Hamels says he paid $70,000 for a...
