Re: Hamels to the DL
I have not compared his pitch counts in his two major league starts to his pitch counts in the minors. For the sake of argument, assume that they are in the same realm (85-100 pitches or so). Why were the Phillies irresponsible for moving him up to face big league hitters rather than minor league hitters? If they thought that he had dominated the minors, which he had, and they thought he was mentally ready to face big league hitters, then how can they be to blame if they were cautiously monitoring his pitch counts?
