Topic - Cole Hamels
Cole Hamels would allow a trade to nine other teams. The Nationals, believe it or not, are one of them.
The Phillies dominated the NL East from 2007-11, winning five division titles, two pennants and one World Series. That's a distant memory now. These Phillies are closer to getting the No. 1 draft pick in next year's amateur draft than getting back to the postseason.
Cole Hamels tried for an extra base and got thrown out. Then he gave Giancarlo Stanton a pitch to hit and paid for it.
Cole Hamels had the perfect opponent for a milestone win.
Homer Bailey took a step backward after a few solid outings.
Cody Asche busted out of his slump. The rest of Philadelphia's hitters didn't join him.
Roberto Hernandez (2-1) struck out three and walked three. His start was moved up two days because Cole Hamels had the flu, and he retired 14 of 15 batters in the middle innings.
Roberto Hernandez might want to have his next start switched, as well.
Gio Gonzalez pitched well enough for a victory. Unfortunately for the Nationals left-hander, his Phillies counterpart was a tad better.
Jonathon Niese stayed warm, and the surprising New York Mets cooled off Philadelphia.
Cole Hamels couldn't beat Mother Nature or the New York Mets on Tuesday.
Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg liked what he saw from Cole Hamels in his long-awaited season debut. A better job by the bullpen would have helped, along with a few more runs against Zack Greinke.
Zack Greinke is in midseason form. Cole Hamels is just starting his season.
The Philadelphia Phillies have activated Cole Hamels from the disabled list to make his season debut against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Before Friday night's game, the Philadelphia Phillies decided that starter Jonathan Pettibone would be sent back to Triple-A to make room in the rotation for Cole Hamels.
"I thought I could surprise him," Hamels said. "He probably made the best throw he has made all year."
"We're so close for that sort of explosion to happen and for everything to come together," Hamels said. "It's a matter of time before it will happen, but I know personally it should happen soon."
