One of the biggest names on the trade market is Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels and as of earlier in the week the Red Sox were still in on the 31-year-old. Making possibly his last start in a Phillies uniform, Hamels went out in style as he threw a no-hitter in a 5-0 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. The left-hander needed 129 pitches to complete the no-no. He did walk two batters and struck out 13. It was his first career no-hitter and was the first no-hitter against the Cubs since Sandy Koufax pitched a perfect game in 1965. "It's something where you just go out there and enjoy the moment," Hamels said to reporters after the game. "What I want is to be successful at it. I enjoyed the moment, and this happened." With Friday's July 31 trade deadline fast approaching, he could be done in a Phillies uniform. Overall this season, Hamels is 6-7 with a 3.64 ERA. For more trade deadline and Red Sox coverage, visit
