The details of the Hamels' trade underscores: PHI had far less leverage than expected, and were greatly boxed in by his no-trade provision.

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

Hard to tell where truth lies, but if that source has ties to Brewers or Gomez & agent, there's serious incentive to minimize any hip issue.

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN

Not saying it's inaccurate, but it's easy to construct a believable narrative that Mets' finances played role.

Andrew Marchand @AndrewMarchand

It is in best interest of Brewers/Boras for it to be about $ than hips, but there are specific details that make you believe $ was a factor

Terry Collins: I didn't know about trade

Said the Mets manager: "Somebody came to me and said Wilmer's crying. I said, 'Why?' 'Well he got traded.' 'To who? For what?' ... There was nothing I knew about it."

As NYM pick up the pieces after the Gomez proposal, focus remains on players who can help them in 2016 as well as 2015, given asking prices.

Kurkjian: Awkward situation all around

Tim Kurkjian to SportsCenter: "As awkward and bizarre as this was, you cannot fault the Mets for this. ... What do you do with Wilmer Flores? You had him traded last night, now he's still on your team. ... It's really, really tricky."

Paul Pierce fails with first pitch

New Clipper Paul Pierce's pitch at the Dodgers game Tuesday came up well short of the target. But what do you expect? The Truth ends games. He doesn't start them.

Bryce Harper leads NL in home runs

The Nats star hit 2 HRs to overtake Giancarlo Stanton for the NL lead. It's the 8th career multi-HR game for Harper, tied for the 5th-most in MLB history by a player before his 23rd birthday. Harper turns 23 in October.

Too bad trade for Gomez didn't happen. But what a scene for ages at Citi w @Mets fans giving Flores a standing O. Loved his emotion. #mets
