Breaking News: Hamels to Start Opening Day!
OK, this isn’t exactly breaking news.
In fact, anybody could have guessed that Cole Hamels would be the Phillies’ Opening Day starter, but Charlie Manuel figured he might as well make it official today anyway.
“Yeah, you might as well go ahead and pencil him in,” Manuel said after today’s workout at the Carpenter Complex. “There’s no sense in me bull (bleeping). I don’t think there’s any sense in me playing games. Go ahead, pencil him in.”
