After last night’s game, Hamels has a 2-11 record with a dismal 4.58 ERA. He allowed 5 runs (4 earned) in 6 innings; luckily, the rest of the team picked him up in a 13-inning 7-5 win.
The Padres are a mediocre team...
Mike Adams is still going to miss the rest of the season. At least it seems that way at this point. He will just be missing the season while trying to avoid surgery. The Philadelphia Phillies reliever is suffering from a biceps strain that's severe enough that surgery has been presented as an option. However, Adams wants to try to rehab the injury first and see if he...

I don’t know if you can really understand until he’s yours. You might’ve forgotten, but Cliff Lee pitched for the Mariners once, and while I knew Lee was an ace starter beforehand, it wasn’t until I watched him every five days that I really “got” it.
