Are the Phillies planning on moving Hamels to the pen with Myers and Gordon on the shelf?

Alfonseca? I know but seriously, since Myers worked out so well in the pen, wouldn't it make sense for them to move Hamels?

I dunno, I had Myers and was eyeing Madson and Alfonseca but went w/ Alf as he got the save the other day and apparently was favored by Charlie Manuel for some reason....

Has this already been discussed somewhere?


I definitely think so. The guy goes from being a starter and never on the DL, to all of a sudden being used on 18 of the next 36 days, and lands on the DL.

it's not the number of innings pitched so much as the warming up that can get you. If you don't do it right - and completely - every time, you'll get hurt trying to throw that hard. On the 18th day as a closer, he wasn't completely ready, and got hurt.
