Cole Hamels needed 125 pitches to get through seven innings in Sunday's loss to the  Mets, but manager Ryne Sandberg wasn't concerned with the high total.

Of course the Phillies don't care about Hamels' pitch count when they already know that they will be sellers on the trade market this year and will probably be dealing Hamels amongst other top players from the team. They'll continue to run him out there and allow his pitch count to climb; not all the time, but whenever they just want to leave him in the game. The condition of his should in the latter part of the season will not be a concern of theirs.
