    Two days later: A fourth national reporter reports that the Phillies "have made Cole Hamels available." The Phillies are listening to offers on Cole Hamels, in addition to Ryan Howard, Cliff Lee and others, but they want "the world" for Hamels. [CBS Sports] The other option, of course, is that the Phillies do not get what they want in return for Hamels and keep him rather than make a bad deal. The Phillies have made teams aware they would need to be thoroughly impressed to trade Hamels, but talks have never gotten much further than that.

There are multiple reports that the Dodgers and Phillies have been in contact recently, and the Phillies have requested the Dodgers' top three prospects to make a deal. There have been numerous reports recently about his availability, but sources told MLB.com that the Phillies have had no substantive talks with any team about their ace. That includes the Dodgers.
