BLUEDUDE SPORTSTALK Sports Shorts Take 22 with a HOT CORNER/STARTING PITCHER of CUP of the JOE in the SHOW Report #63...Phils' HAMELS last seen looking for BANK Depositories...FISH Hot Corner HANLEY Ramirez sent packing to CHAVEZ Ravine...is it MARLINS Fire Sale 3.0 without a CHIP to show for it?

With the MLB Trade Deadline looming July 31, 2012...some teams are already off to getting rid of or keeping their Most-Prized Possessions.

Citizens Bank Ballpark...Philly P.A....Fightin' Phils Starting Rotation: Left-handed Pitcher Cole Hamels says take that for leaving Philly as he reportedly agrees to a Whopping 6-years and $144 Million Deal that would enable him to be Minority Owner of the Phils when he hangs the Cleats up.

The 2nd largest Contract to a Starting Pitcher in the Show to the Yankees Ace C.C. Sabathia. Is Hamels worth that much Dough? The Phils think so as their once proud Staff has been decimated by Injuries, Roster Moves, and plain ole' ineffectiveness. Now the Phils can cut the Phone Lines as there will be no one calling them to acquire the Poor Man's Steve Carlton.

As for Hamels and Retirement you know what I meant....Liquid Assets...and Big Time
and Hamels' Squeeze or Ball and Chain has to be like...Your Awesome Cole!

New Marlins Ballpark...Liberty City, Florida...Orange Bowl Replacement Area: Just 4 Years ago he was suppose to be the Next in Line of Great ones from the Dominican Republic. Now a Dan Uggla Fake Donny Brook and 3 Years removed form that Season Hanley Ramirez finds himself the face of not the New Marlins with Partner in Crime Jose Reyes but the New Hot Corner in Chavez Ravine and Dodger Town USA.

Look at these Stats Hanley put up from 2006-2010 in Fightn' Fish Duds:

2006  17 Hrs 59 RBI .292 Avg

2007  29 Hrs  82 RBI .332 Avg

2008  33 Hrs  67 RBI  .301 Avg

2009  24 Hrs  106 RBI  .342 Avg

2010  21 Hrs  76 RBI   .300 Avg

Note: Numbers from MLB.com

Since those seasons Hanley has been slowed by Injuries hitting .244 and 10 Bombs with 45 RBI's on Average. Hanley looking at times not Locked In at All as though he needed a New Start. I can't blame the Fish here for moving an Asset that looked completely uninterested at Times and having one of the Largest Salaries on the Fish. Are the Fish throwing in the Towel who knows but they made a Huge Statement in that Clubhouse. You know Skip Ozzie Guillen is on Board with the Fact that if you don't perform your Livelihood is in Jeopardy.

I know one person who is Probably like I told you so Marlins...Braves 2nd Baseman and Former Fish 2nd Baseman and Dan Uggla.
