Does the Cole Hamels trade mean that the Cubs are the most attractive team in baseball?

With the non-waiver Trade Deadline just around the corner, the Cubs acquired Cole Hamels from the Rangers for prospects on Thursday night. Chicago most likely targeted Hamels to bolster its starting rotation down the stretch, but the move has far-reaching implications for a different sort of race: the race to be the most attractive team in baseball.

Hamels -- inconsistent facial hair aside -- has established himself over the years as one of the better-looking pitchers in the Majors. Now he joins a team that already features guys like Kris Bryant and Javy Baez. So, it begs the question: Is Chicago the fairest team of them all? We've assembled some finalists below, simply hit the up or down arrow to make your voice heard.
