Yes, and it's too bad this is Cueto's turn. I know it's a great pitching matchup but I would love Cueto and Latos to pitch the first two Cards games.
Phillips really needed the day off. He's played a ton lately. He struggled against the Cubs but has hit pretty well against the Phils. While Hamels is a lefty, Brandon needs the day before the Cards.
Maybe Cairo and Valdez will come through.
Phils resting Rollins.
