Cole Hamels was good yesterday. Hey, he should have been with the extra rest after being suspended last week. With yesterday's 3-2 win against the San Diego Padres, the Phillies picked up just their second home series win of the season (and first since taking two of three from Miami from April 9-12). So far the Phillies are 7-9 at Citizens Bank Park. If Charlie Manuel really did send a message with his closed-door meeting the other night, then the Phillies will take both games of a mini two-game series with the Houston Astros, starting tonight (weather pending).

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the New York Mets are likely to offer third baseman David Wright a long-term deal. Bad news for any Phillies fan who had visions of Wright manning third base after Placido Polanco's contract expires.

Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was placed on the disabled list with a torn ACL, and he is done for the rest of the year. The Nats Blog takes a look at who will fill in behind the plate for the Nationals moving forward.

Mike Schmidt, Hall of Famer.
