HAMELS: THANKS, METS - Philled In

"When you play the Mets, knowing the [depleted] team they have, and all of a sudden, you’re getting beat by the bench guys, you have to really put things in perspective," Hamels said last night. "You can’t get the ‘A’ guys out, and you can’t even get the ‘B’ guys out, you’ve got a problem. So, that’s when I decided to go out there and break it down to simple and know what are the reasons why I got to the big leagues. I really tried not to stress myself out in going out there and trying to be too good or trying to fall into those expectations."

O snap?
