Check out the "nickname for Hamels fan club" thread. Cole's LOLs is my favorite

I like the guy who has the Reds sweeping the Phils!

That dude also has Dave Williams as coming closest to Hamels's ERA (though if he's predicting a Reds sweep, maybe he doesn't think the ERA will be too good).

I take it personally when another board predicts a sweep of the Reds by any team, even if I were to do it myself (which I'm not in this case). As in, WHAT, you don't take us seriously?!? Logical, I know.

1. Who wins the series? (Please provide margin)
Reds 2-1

2. What inning does Cole Hamels allow his first run: innings 1-3 / innings 4-6 / innings 7-9 / does not allow a run?

3. Next great Lefty? In Steve Carlton’s first season as a Phillie, he struck out 8.1 batters per 9 innings. Is Hamels K/9 rate on Friday higher or lower?

4. Who is a Cole Hamels strikeout victim more: Adam Dunn, or Austin Kearns + 1 K.

5. What is the result of Cole Hamels first big league at-bat: strikes out / reaches base or successful sacrifice bunt / puts ball in play, but out?
Strike Out

6. Does Cole Hamels allow a homerun? If ‘yes’, ten point bonus if you guess the slugging Redleg.
Yes. I don't know how many bonus points there are, but FeLo, Kearns, and Dunn at least.

7. Which Reds starter comes closest to Hamels’ Friday ERA: Dave Williams, Elizardo Ramirez, Brandon Claussen?
Dave Williams, because the kid is going to get shelled.

8. Over/Unders, must get both right for full credit: Hamels strikeouts=9. Over or Under? Hamels hits allowed=5. Over or Under?
Under. Over

9. Which Phillies starter allows fewer runs than Hamels: both Myers and Lieber / only Myers / only Lieber / neither Myers or Lieber?
Both, again I think the kid gets shelled.

10. How many 1-2-3 innings for Cole Hamels: 0-2 / 3-4 / 5 or more?
0-2 more specifically 0

BONUS: What percentage of batters does Cole Hamels throw a first pitch strike to?
