The Curse of Ryan Madson

Postby Super Manny » Thu May 25, 2006 1:51 am

On May 12, 2006, the Philadelphia Phillies recalled ace pitching prospect Cole Hamels to join the rotation. Hamels took the place of struggling converted reliever Ryan Madson. Ever since, Hamels has run into a series of bad luck in his fledgling major league career. Coincidence...or is it the Curse of Ryan Madson? You decide.

May 12, 2006 - In his Major League debut, Hamels baffles the Reds lineup. He pitches a gem in five strong innings with seven strikeouts, no earned runs, and only one hit allowed. Ryan Madson enters the game in relief and quickly surrenders the Phillies' 2-0 lead, giving up two solo home runs.

May 18, 2006 In his second start, this against the Brewers, Hamels again gets no decision. After giving up only one earned run through six innings, Hamels gives up a two-run shot to Chad Moeller. Next, he walks Gabe Gross, and is replaced on the mound by Ryan Madson. Madson allows Gross to score and will give up another run in the inning.

May 23, 2006 - The Philadelphia Phillies lose a 16-inning contest in dramatic fashion with a Carlos Beltran walk-off solo shot. Ryan Madson is credited with the loss, but is otherwise solid. Madson lasted seven scoreless innings, giving up only three hits with six strikeouts, before giving up the deciding run. It is reported after the game that Cole Hamels will be scratched from his start the next day after experiencing soreness in the back of his left shoulder while throwing in the outfield.

May 24, 2006 - The Phillies officially place Hamels on the 15-day DL, with a strained left shoulder. Ryan Madson will reportedly take Hamels' spot in the rotation and will start in his place on Sunday.
