There are only a few number ones in the majors like Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies. What west coast hurlers are his equal?
TAL’S HANDY STATS
I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the other divisional staffs periodically. The completed number of games for the Phillies is at the end of the headline.
If you want to check out something different, my storyline articles–by design–represent a baseball man’s thinking, dugout observations and the general manager’s view. Go to my author archives for my most recent coverage. Scroll down to Tal’s Handy Links at the bottom.
There will be new storylines after I solve my visibility issues. More details are at Tal’s Handy Caps on Facebook (link below).

The Philadelphia entered the All-Star break at an even .500 on the season. It seems fitting considering the team appears to be on the fence between buying and selling this summer. While at one point it appeared the Phillies could sell with an eye toward the future, it now appears the team will be reluctant to deal veterans at the deadline based on comments made by general partner...
Philadelphia Phillies right-hander reliever Mike Adams still feels discomfort in his pitching shoulder and might be headed for season-ending surgery.
Adams has been on the disabled list since June 21 with right biceps tendinitis. Phillies trainer Scott Sheridan said Adams was examined Thursday by team medical director Dr. Michael Ciccotti and plans to see Los Angeles Dodgers doctor...
15 hits, 13 runs...that's what it took for the Phillies to win their 49th game of the season and get a head start on the second half of the season. Although Kyle Kendrick surrendered six earned runs through 5 2/3 innings his offense gave him enough run support to give...
The Phillies apparently are willing to try anything right now in their quest for a center fielder. We already knew that Cesar Hernandez was working in center field in case something happened to Phillies regular Ben Revere. But now, they appear to be ruling no one out, as reported by...
A week ago, Phillies left-handed reliever was on the comeback trail, rehabbing at AAA Lehigh Valley. He was doing well: Jeremy Horst with some pretty good heat, strikes out two of three batters he faces in the T7. Wer'e tied at 1-1 — jeff schuler (@jschulermc) July 12, 2013 But...
MLB All-Star Week first-half highlights come to a close this week with the number one play from the first-half. It wasn’t a first half full of edge of your seat highlights, but this catch probably made up for everything.
Ben Revere’s first-half catch vs. the Cincinnati Reds might be the best catch we’ve seen in years not just this season. So while we don’t have a ton of highlights...
Most staffs typically have a significant drop-off after their one and two, but the Philadelphia Phillies with John Lannan have a solid five. How do other divisional teams fare on the bottom rung of their rotations?

Picture by Andrew Gillen Baseball. Is. Back. After an All-Star Break that seemed to last a month and a half, the Phillies and the rest of Major League Baseball returned to regular season action. It was a disappointing showing for Cliff Lee and Domonc Brown on Tuesday night, but it...
The Philadelphia Phillies have had a winning record once this year. They've had the best mark in baseball after the All-Star break over the past six.
The Phillies look to begin another strong second half when they open a pivotal nine-game road trip against the New York Mets on Friday night.
The Phillies (48-48) have won eight of 11 and are looking to move above .500 for the...
