Fans of the infamous @FanSince09 will know what I mean when I call tonight's game the "Should of Kept" Matchup, as the beloved former Phillie J.A. Happ, baseball's best young lefthander, starts for the Astros and faces off against Cole Hamels, a/k/a the nefarious "Coal Hammels" who is soft and has single-handedly undermined two consecutive Phillies postseason runs, and will ruin a third in 2011 if we let him!
Happ is in the midst of a dreadful season, and Hamels was challenging for the Cy Young Award before his August stint on the Disabled List. Still... SHOULD OF KEPT.
Discuss the game below.
