Cole Hamels allowed six runs on eight hits and five walks with three strikeouts over just 4.2 innings against the Mets on Tuesday.
You can probably blame it on the 88-minute rain delay, because once things finally did start up, Hamels looked completely out of sorts. In addition to the five free passes, four of which happened in the fourth inning, he also hit one batter and just couldn't seem to get back on-track during the outing. He threw 106 pitches and still couldn't get out of the fifth inning. Look for him to rebound next week when he faces the Nationals next week. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Cardinals have signed DT Red Bryant.
This is already the third team Bryant has been with this season as the 31-year old defensive lineman is nothing more than added depth and always the roster casualty when the team needs roster room. At least he gets to spend his Thanksgiving knowing that he is still employed. Analysis: Howard Bender
