REASONING For The Stats:
These numbers are a glimpse over the pitching coach’s shoulder, because they warn of difficulty ahead. The rule of thumb is that the bullpen load should be no more than 33.3%, which is a 6-complete average per scheduled outing. That is why going a dis...
BEST OF MAXIM

In a game the Phillies had to win, Cole Hamels and the Phillies offense faltered in a 6-1 Braves win.
In five innings, Hamels gave up five runs, three earned, struck out seven but walked six in five innings.
The defense was shaky, as with two outs in the second, as Mike Fontenot let a ground ball tie him up and the Braves went ahead 2-1.
With two out in the bottom of the 5th, Brian...
While we wait to see if this exact incarnation of Philadelphia Phillies can actually win meaningful games and work to keep its core intact, the front office of this organization took a major step in showing us their commitment to winning long term this week.

Locked and loaded, Cole Hamels makes his first start after Ruben Amaro Jr. and Co. worked out a huge commitment to the best home grown pitcher in the Phillies' system since Robin Roberts.

ATLANTA -- Two days after signing a six-year, $144 million contract extension, Philadelphia Phillies starter Cole Hamels walked a career-high six batters in five innings -- his shortest outing of the season.
