Game 99 Open Thread: Phillies at Cubs

This could be the last time we see Cole Hamels in a Phillies uniform.

This game, today, could be the last time we ever see Cole Hamels in a Phillies uniform.

Or it might not. Right now we're in this weird place where the Phillies might trade him, or they might not. Either scenario is plausible right now. There are six more days until the end of the trade deadline, so at or before that time we'll know for sure if he'll be traded.

Probably.

Today's Lineups

Don't let the genial tone of this game thread mislead you. I'm going to miss the shit out of Cole Hamels. I'm going to miss him so much. Oh god. I know it's for the best but I don't want to see him in another uniform ever. Ever!
