June 16: Hamels vs. Colon

First, I apologize: the Phillies probably lost yesterday because I titled the game thread "June 16." Of course, it was actually June 15. We regret the error, and especially the defeat.

So the Red Sox are here. No Ortiz, a hobbling Manny Ramirez, and we miss Josh Beckett, but they're still damn good. Bartolo Colon, who just might have represented a better contingency-plan investment than Kris Benson, starts tonight against Cole Hamels. The forecast calls for pain, at least when the big fella's up to bat.
