I am not going to blow smoke up anybody's butt and suggest that the Phillies are any good. But just looking at their respective rosters the Phillies should be way better than the Mets, yet they are 6-13 against them. If they reversed that, they would be 3 games out of the last wild card.
Hamels has stated numerous times that one of his goals in MLB was to pitch a no-hitter. I wonder if this qualifies in his mind? He is definitely one of the best pitchers in MLB and the fact that he could do what he did yesterday with far less than his best stuff is telling.
