Cole Hamels lacked pinpoint control and zip on his fastball Friday night. "Oh crap, he's injured!" was the conclusion many fans jumped to. The Phillies on the other hand are calling it "dead arm". Manuel thinks he'll be able to work his way out of it. Maybe everything turns out okay...
Around the NL East:
GB = Games Back
Atlanta Braves 70-50, 8.5 GB. That Popeye/Elvish hybrid Dan Uggla has a 33 game hit streak. Also, they released "their Danys Baez" this week, by parting ways with Scott Proctor.
New York Mets 58-61, 20 GB. LOLMets.
Washington Nationals 57-62, 21 GB. Jayson Werth is awesome, isn't he? Totally a cornerstone player upon which to build a winning franchise. Fail.
Florida Marlins 56-63, 22 GB. That vulgar tweetin' S.O.B. LoMo (aka- Logan Morrison) was optioned to the minors yesterday. Also, they released "their Michael Martinez" yesterday, who just so happened to be our Wes Helms once upon a time.
