This will be a developing story, more details will be added as we can pull them together, but it appears that the National Sports Media Narrative, specifically, the one regarding Cole Hamels being an overpaid mid-rotation starter, is bunk.

Hamels demonstrated this in convincing fashion, throwing a no-hit shutout against the Cubs in Chicago, and who am I kidding you all know this.

Hamels' final line: 9.0 innings, 0 hits, 2 walks, 13 strikeouts. His Gamescore was 98 (tying the all-time Franchise record held by Roy Halladay and Steve Carlton), and he threw 129 pitches.

We'll be having fun with this all weekend at least, if not longer, so if you have thoughts or things to share, feel free to Fanpost them and we'll add them to the pile.

Also, in case I haven't mentioned it, Cole Hamels is dreamy.
