So sure? Wouldn't shock me in the slightest if Hamels struggled mightily on short rest just because he's such a fickle dude. Guy is a great pitcher, but I have serious questions about his mental fortitude.
This team also has won and won with Blanton on the mound. Just because it's the playoffs does not mean you should start approaching everything differently. Little things, yes. Big things...no. Teams get in trouble when they get away from the stuff that made them good in the first place.
