FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: COLE HAMELS WON'T ACCEPT DEAL TO HOUSTON

A source that has knowledge of the trade talks between the team and player indicated Wednesday that Cole Hamels has refused to waive his no-trade inclusion of the Houston Astros in order to consummate a deal.  Hamels has remained steadfast in his desire not to be moved to the Astros and instead is likely going to land with the Texas Rangers.  The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers are also somewhat connected by the Rangers have escalated their talks with Hamels in the last 24 hours to more "serious" stage. 

Analysis:  Hamels seems destined for Texas where they will pair him with a recovering Yu Darvish to give the team a massive top two starters.  The ballpark and league are a decent-sized drag on Hamels' fantasy baseball value though but he has managed to be an ace starter in a bandbox like Philly.  Stay tuned.
