Cole Hamels Throws a No-Hitter: Social Media Reaction
If that was the last time Cole Hamels pitched for the Phillies, it was a hell of a way to go out.
The longtime Phillies pitcher — the 2008 World Series MVP — has been on the trade block all season long. On Saturday afternoon, he pitched a no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs, winning the game 5-0. It was the 13th no-hitter in team history.
Oh, and he hit a double to help his own cause.
Phillies fans — who have suffered mightily this awful season — celebrated on social media. (And they speculated about the future, too.)

Trading a pitcher after he throws a no-hitter might be the ultimate Philly thing to do. #ColeHamels

After Cole Hamels no-hitter now it's up to #Phillies GM Ruben Amaro to have a little leverage to trade him. Can Amaro do it after No-No
