should I be worrying about Cole Hamels?

Postby acapulco » Sat Mar 31, 2007 5:26 pm

I know all about his potential and what Hamels did in the 2nd half last season--I drafted him. But what a miserable ST he's having. And how many home runs did he give up to the Red Sox the other day--3? 4? Should I be worried? I'm keeping him on the bench for his 1st start against the Dodgers. Thoughts?

You shouldn't be worried. Start him against the Dodgers.

i wouldnt pay much attention to ST stats. be worried about hamels staying in one piece, but not about him dominating when he's out on the mound

thoughts on my projections?

He's starting their second game vs. Atlanta (Hudson) Wednesday 4/4. I agree with these guys though, I wouldn't be worried about him. Spring training is spring training. He'll be fine. Yes this is coming from a Philly guy and a Cole lover.

His ST performance? No. His higher % to get injured since he has a history of injuries. A little.

dont worry about spring training. most guys take ST a little easier because they wanna stay healthy. and dont worry too much about his tendancy to get injured either. a lot of it is freak injuries like the bar fight, i wouldn't call him injured proned.

Well in that case, start him against the Braves. The original poster said his first start was against the Dodgers. Either way, there's absolutely nothing to worry about.

I would worry more about health. You never know what a guy is working on during spring training. Maybe he was working on a pitch, give him 5-10 starts and then start worrying if he hasn't improved.
