As a Hamels owner in a keeper league in which I'm currently in 2nd and need a strong stretch run from my rotation, and in a season in which I kept Carpenter and Sheets, all I can say is . . .

:-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P

I've got a bad feeling about this. Hamels has clearly been bothered by something over the last month (his K/9 fell off the charts) and this is likely the reason. Every time I hear "sore elbow" a little voice whispers in my ear "Tommy John, Tommy John . . ."

It's certainly not out of the question, but is this anything more than speculation?

total speculation but does Liriano ring a bell. I'm not sure if its a similiar injury or not but look what happened when they rushed him back.

So I ask everybody here, why would they bring him back?

The kid is 23 years old and the future ace for many years to come.

They will shut him down.

I agree, but I think some of this is dependent on how far out of the Wild Card race they are on September 1st. If they're out of it, he ain't pitching for sure.

"# A lot of you asked about what I meant when I said "tricky language" yesterday in my discussion of Cole Hamels' elbow. Most of the reports said "medial collateral ligament strain." It's correct, even precise, but it's also something of a misdirection. To most--likely not readers of this column--they'll hear this, not recognize what's being said, and move on. However, you might notice that the medial collateral is another word for a more sinister-sounding piece of anatomy--the ulnar collateral ligament. Like the pronunciation of "abduction," synonymical words don't necessarily mean much beyond a preference and who taught the doctor or trainer. Hamels' ligaments seem intact, according to the reading of a contrast MRI taken just before he was placed on the DL, but there is damage, which suggests that there's something off with his mechanics or that he's reached beyond the fatigue point and is seeing damage. It should surprise no one that Hamels just exceeded his previous career innings high by 30. Given his history of injuries, it's hard to nail down just where Hamels should be--injuries are the biggest exception to the Rule of 30. One thing is sure--Hamels' long-term health is going to be one of the biggest factors in whether the Phillies are good in years to come."

Good news for Hamels owners?

Cole Hamels threw on the side before Saturday's game and said his injured left elbow felt fine.

"There was no soreness. It was all good," said Hamels, who is eligible to come off the disabled list Saturday. He threw from about 80 feet, is expected to throw from a mound Tuesday and then have another bullpen session later in the week. There's a chance Hamels will rejoin the rotation in Florida on Saturday or next Sunday.
