Hamles Pitches Tomorrow
The good news for Phillies fans is that Cole Hamels — sometimes it’s spelled Hamles — makes his season debut tomorrow night against the Rockies at Coors Field. Talking to pitching coach Rich Dubee yesterday, he sounds pretty confident Hamels’ velocity will pick up a bit tomorrow night, although he said most pitchers don’t have their true velocity until May. He also thinks Hamels is healthy.
We’ll see how it goes.
Thanks to The Fightins for this picture. I’m guessing one of three things about this jersey: 1) He doesn’t know Hamels’ name is misspelled. 2) He got it as a gift and he’s such a nice guy that he continues to wear it despite the obvious mistake. 3) The guy’s last name actually is Hamles.
We Should Be GMs tries to find a solution to the Phillies’ slow starts.
