It's Cole Hamels night, everybody! I love Cole Hamels night! There aren't going to be many more of them, so we should all enjoy them before he's wearing another team's uniform and I'm sobbing in front of my TV screaming "WHY GOD WHY" clutching my Hamels jersey in my arms so I can use it as a handkerchief.
But anyway. It's Cole Hamels night! That's a good thing! Because he's still here! For now! Life is short and happiness is fleeting!
Oh thank god for this bunny video. Look at that little bunbun snacking on a raspberry! SO CUTE.
Whew. Things got dark there for a minute. I think it's time for lineups.

I'd be more positive about tonight if it weren't for this tweet from Jake Kaplan earlier.
Cole Hamels & Aaron Harang have received the worst and 2nd-worst run support among National League starters this season.— Jake Kaplan (@jakemkaplan) June 30, 2015
That's not very encouraging. And everyone should feel bad for Hamels and Harang, because they don't deserve this. But who knows, maybe the Phillies can do it! Maybe they can win! That will bring them to nine wins this month! Oh Lord, they need to win this game. Not for any real practical reason, it's just that eight wins in a month is utterly depressing.
So, uh, win Phillies! Go win go! Cheer cheer cheer! No seriously please win.
