Boston Red Sox pitchers and catchers report to training camp in Fort Myers, Florida on Friday. With no ace starting pitcher to lead the staff, what is the status of the much talked about Cole Hamels trade?

Sox GM Ben Cherington said recently the current roster is likely to be the roster that shows up at Fort Myers.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports MLB sources tell him the Sox were one of four teams making offers to the Phillies for Hamels last week. And, the offer was heavy on sending major leaguers to Philly.

Phils GM Ruben Amaro wants prospects.

So five days to the start of camp. Does someone blink before Friday?
