Hamels Gets Hammered

April 24th, 2010 by Christian | Filed under General.

D-Backs Mark Reynolds Connects

The Bad: After retiring the first ten batters he faced, Cole Hamels gave up four homeruns to turn an early 2-0 Phillies lead into a loss. Phils lose 7-4.

The Good: Before he started to get the ball up in the strike zone, Hamels resembled the dominant pitcher he was in the 2008 playoffs.

Commentary: The Phillies need Hamels. His split personality has been concerning. Since the 2008 World Series, Hamels record is 12-13. He needs to do better, and he will.

Next Game: Tonight vs. Diamondbacks
Game Time: 8:10 p.m. ET, Chase Field, AZ
Pitching Matchup: Nelson Figueroa (1-1, 2.45) vs. Ian Kennedy (0-1, 5.65)

    I am soo sick of this spacecase. His era is absolutely ridiculous. I believe Ruben got rid of Lee in part because Cole could not take being second fiddle to another lefty. Well soo much for that theory he is a kook who is absolutely a joke. How do you explain a 12 ERA! You can’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so over this 2 hit wonder, CK I respect the fact you think he will rebound. I DON”T We need to give up ALL our prospects and go get a number 2 starter, cause he is not!

    He looked great early. He’s definitely an enigma.

    That was a pitiful performance by Hamels.
