Thank god, hopefully we just do what we did with Lidge last year, shut him down for the first couple weeks of the season just to be sure that everything is alright. If we loose Hamels, we don't come close to repeating, simple as that.
^ If we lose Hamels, we dont even come close to winning the division.
I dunno, I wouldn't put anything past the Muts, especially since their pitching is god awful behind Santana and Pelfrey. I'm honestly more worried about the Braves/Marlins untill the Mets show that they can actually win with their pitching. Perez is a headcase, and has no control/consistency ever...Maine is coming of shoulder surgery, and was never anything special before that. And Freddy Garcia (**** you) and Tim Redding (40.50 ERA this spring) are not quality major league pitchers.
But I'm absolutely sure that if we don't have Hamels in the playoffs, we would loose.
Did anyone see the thing about Hamels in the news on CBS this morning? They caught up to him on the street to ask him how he was feeling and he didnt really want to say, just smiled and said good or something and wouldnt really stop to talk. They followed him until he got into his car and drove away and after they were like I guess he gave his MVP Camaro to his wife(which I heard he did) because they showed him get into his Silver MINIVAN and drive away. Cole Hamels...25 year old professional baseball player, Worth 20+ millions dollars, Ace of the World Series Champs, World Series MVP, Driver of a freakin Minivan???
He and his wife, Hamels says, are the only people in their West Chester neighborhood without kids. He says they're also the only ones that drive a minivan, providing room for Heidi's start-up T-shirt business.
