The Philadelphia Phillies and Cole Hamels began contract negotiations before the season began, and they have not been able to come to an agreement about a new deal for Hamels as he gets closer and closer to becoming a free agent.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports now believes that it would be an "upset" if Hamels wound up in a Phillies jersey next season. The Phillies are likely going to continue working to re-sign Hamels, but they may end up seeing him sign somewhere else.

Whichever team signs Hamels will immediately improve and could turn themselves into division or World Series favorites.
