He put runners on nearly every inning and the 5 walks were not good to see. He couldn't locate his pitches probably 75% of the time and got some help on a double play and a moment of clarity in which he K'ed Zimmerman and Da'Meat Hook back to back. Another thing I noticed about him today, he's a hothead, I think he lets his emotions get to him too quickly, it's sad, b/c he has some great stuff if he would just settle down.
He's an extreme hothead. I think he's a guy who would benefit greatly by having an experienced pitcher like Moyer or Maddux around to help him through rough patches. Hamels turn-around last year was in part due to Moyer showing up and providing vet leadership.
