The thing with Philly is they can buck the wild card. I think the theory was that a wild card team would have to throw its ace in the WC game thus leaving them with their #2 and 3 in the next series. Philly could throw Hamels in the WC game and if they win start of the next series with Lee, Haladay, and then Hamels in game 3. Lee and Haladay aren't putting up typical numbers this season but they still are dangerous pitchers.
