Another day has been erased from the calendar. Time is running out for teams and players to make decisions that will affect the remainder of this season as well as their future beyond this year. The trade deadline is only six days away. The Phillies continued to work on their first order of business Tuesday, which is reaching an agreement on a contract extension with lefthander Cole Hamels. A source close to the situation said the two sides were "working hard to try and get a solution" before adding that there are "still issues remaining."
