Stop: Hamels time. Yeah, I said it.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

God, I love Cole Hamels. When he's on, he's absolutely delightful to watch. And if his last start was any indication, he's past his early-season yips and fully ready to make every other baseball team thoroughly jealous. I love it when that happens.

I'll miss him when he's gone, but I'm going to enjoy him while he's here. Cole Hamels forever!

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES MIAMI MARLINS
Ben Revere - LF Dee Gordon - 2B
Odubel Herrera - CF Martin Prado - 3B
Chase Utley - 2B Giancarlo Stanton - RF
Ryan Howard - 1B Marcell Ozuna - CF
Grady Sizemore - RF Jeff Baker - 1B
Cody Asche - 3B J.T. Realmuto - C
Carlos Ruiz - C Ichiro Suzuki - LF
Freddy Galvis - SS Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Cole Hamels - LHP Dan Haren - RHP

There are obviously other people in the lineup. The Withered Husk of Grady Sizemore is back again, Ryan Howard is batting clean-up, and it's obvious that Ryne Sandberg has finally found a lineup he likes. I kind of liked it better when he would change his lineup every day. At least then there was a chance he'd get something right, even by accident.

Come on, offense. Don't let Cole down!
