Ace is not the place for Cole Hamels

The Phillies are 2 games under .500 and if it weren't for the Mets and Marlins, the Phillies would be 5-14 right now. There are plenty of reasons for this, but one number sticks in my mind: 1-5. That is the Phillies' record in games in which Cole Hamels has pitched. Hamels gets a pass on a couple of these outings, but a 6-9 record was unacceptable for Cliff Lee last year...
