    I dont think rushing someone to the majors has much to do with a pop in a shoulder. Methinks he pitches the same up in the majors that he did in the minors and he wasnt pitching anything out of the norm in terms of pitch counts was he? Just bad luck or typical for this guy from what I understand.

    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?

    Yeah, that has labrum issues written all over it.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Just so Reds-like in terms of their luck that one of his only two healthy major league starts ever came against them...

    Though I'm normally a vocol opponent of rushing pitchers (it's just racing toward failure and calamity says I), Cole Hamels arm was going to blow up no matter where he pitched. He's made of balsa.
