The Phillies are going with Cole Hamels. This means a few things:
1. Corey Hart should be on the bench. 1-13 with a single and 6 strikeouts. Combine that with how atrocious he has been and I put Joe Dillon (2-2) in right.
2. Bill Hall is terrible, especially so against Hamels (3-15 with 5 k's). I don't care if he is a lefty, he is a lefty who is tougher on righties than lefties. Counsell gets the start.
3. Same goes with Durham (1-7, 3 k's) and Weeks (.785 OPS).
You see the trend? To beat Hamels you start your lefties.
