213 Miles From Shea:
The Mets are moving up 95 to Philly this weekend for a series with the Phillies after taking 3 of 5 from the Braves this week. Yesterday the Mets held it together with solo shots with Wright (2 of them) and Brown followed by an RBI double by Satin later. Tonight Jeremy Hefner will be facing Cole Hamels.
Hefner is 1-6 this season over 75.0 innings with a 3.96 ERA. Hefner has pitched 18.0 innings in the month of June with a nice 1.50 ERA as he continues to prove why he should be in the rotation when Wheeler is fully added. His second start of the year was against the Phillies where he allowed 5 ER over 3.0 innings, so doing well tonight will be a nice statistical point to plot growth. The Phillies have the following numbers against him:
Rollins 3-7, 2 2B
Brown 2-2, HR
Howard 3-3, HR
The Mets draw a common foe in Cole Hamels tonight. Hamels is 2-10 (league leading in losses) on the season pitching 15 games, 94.0 innings with a 4.40 ERA. Hamels has been turning it around in June making three starts pitching 20.0 innings posting a 2.70 ERA and he did a good job against the Mets earlier this season allowing one earned run over 6.0 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Cole:
Wright 18-54, 3 2B, 3B, 4 HR
Buck 2-25, 2 HR
Murphy 6-23, 2B, HR
Lets Go Mets!
BEST OF MAXIM
Jeremy Hefner pitched six innings of strong baseball in Philadelphia on Friday night to help propel the New York Mets to a 4-3 victory over their National League East rival Philadelphia Phillies. Hefner allowed three runs, two earned, on 10 hits while striking out six in the process. Friday’s start marked his sixth consecutive start in which he allowed three earned runs or less...
Cole Hamels racked up his major league leading 11th loss of 2013 on Friday night.
The Phillies jumped out to an early 3-0 lead but Hamels allowed the Mets to chip away at it and by the end of the sixth inning had given up the lead. Overall Hamels allowed four runs on seven hits, while striking out five and walking three.
Hamels has recorded seven losses in his last ten starts. While...

For the second straight start, Cole Hamels was spotted a lead. And for the second straight start, he couldn’t hold it. This time, it was in a 4-3 loss to the hated Mets. Hamels continues to muddle through a very bizarre 2013. He’s gotten decent run support in his last few outings, but he just can’t seem to...
Mets 4, Phillies 3
The New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 tonight at Citizens Bank Park to open their three game series. The Mets have won five of their last seven games.
Jeremy Hefner started and after a rough second inning that saw him give up three early runs, he settled down and held the Phillies scoreless for the next four innings while the Mets battled back to...

The guys cover topics like how to explain Cole Hamels’ season, what it means to trade an ace like Cliff Lee, Ben Revere’s resurgence, and why Kevin Fransden deserves more playing time.
Jay Floyd talks with Kyle Simon, the rightly...

It’s been a month since Chase Utley has played meaningful baseball after straining his oblique on May 21.
That changes tonight. At long last, the Phillies second baseman is back, and...
Cole Hamels took the mound for the Phillies tonight. Cole went 6 innings, had 7 hits, 4 runs, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Bullpen did well (they did not implode… small steps), but the bats were dead. The Phillies only scored three runs in one inning. Chase Utley made his...
The first things some fans want to bring up in regards to Cole Hamels 2013 season is how similar Hamels’ run is to that of Cliff Lee in 2012. I will agree that Hamels deserves a couple more wins than he has, but Lee in 2012 outperformed Hamels to this point by a mile.
Lee finished 2012 with a 6-9 record and a 3.16 ERA with 207 Ks in 217 IP. No question Lee has pitched better...
In 1962 it was Bob Miller, in ’93 it was Anthony Young, and now in 2013 there is Shaun Marcum. With last night’s unsightly loss to the Braves, Marcum now holds the third worst record to start a season in franchise history at 0-9. Granted that he hasn’t exactly had a great deal of run support behind him, the 31-year old hasn’t held up his end of the bargain all season long...
Wins haven't been easy to come by for Philadelphia's Cole Hamels, but he got the best of the New York Mets earlier this season.
Manager Terry Collins' club has generally struggled in the series of late.
Hoping to avoid becoming the majors' first 11-game loser, Hamels tries to lead the Phillies to a sixth consecutive win over the visiting Mets in Friday night'...
Juan Lagares hit a go-ahead double, Jeremy Hefner pitched six effective innings and the New York Mets came back from a three-run deficit to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Friday night.
Hefner (2-6) gave up three runs - two earned - and 10 hits to help the Mets snap a five-game losing streak against the Phillies.
Eric Young Jr. had two hits, including a two-run single for the...
It's a village in Wales. And until Friday night it was the only existing word that has eleven L's in it. Linguistic experts on Friday have incredibly found a second word with eleven L's in it:
Yes, I know. A pitcher's W-L record hardly matters anymore without context. But when whinedog...
"If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans." -Woody Allen
The plan was that one of Shaun Marcum or Jeremy Hefner would be the one to leave the rotation. But that was before Jon Niese's tendonitis flared up again like it was a bout of hemorrhoids. His performance over the first three and a third innings was your first clue that something was wrong as he...
A lack of stellar pitching performances in FanDuel leagues yesterday — Clayton Kershaw (9), Julio Teheran (9.33) and Cole Hamels (7) were the three most-picked pitchers — depressed team point totals, which meant my team’s 27.75 points were good for ninth place. Only one entry in my 20-team league picked Stephen Strasburg, who went on to score 19 points.Today you’ll have very...
