Cole Hamels tossed eight scoreless in the no-decision on Wednesday against the Padres holding them to five hits with one walk and 11 punch outs.

Anyone who has followed my work over at least the last year and some change knows I caught a bunch of flack for ranking Hamels outside my top 15 going into last season. That said, I know how important it is to remain open minded, and in the case of Hamels he has earned my renewed confidence having pitched back-to-back shutouts and has allowed just one run while striking out 26 over his last three starts (22.2 IP) and has allowed just four home runs over his 10 starts this year. If by the off chance you can trade MIchael Wacha for Hamels I would jump at that opportunity. Another plus with Hamels is that he will get an extended period of rest before his next start a week from Friday on the road against the Cardinals.
