Cole Hamels allowed three runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts over seven innings against the Nationals on Saturday.

Hamels has now thrown eight quality starts over his last nine outings. The pitch counts, including the 117 he threw in this latest outing, have been real high for him, but the Phillies keep rolling him out there inning after inning. It's pretty obvious that they know they're going to be sellers and while he's not the first one they want to deal, they also know he should bring back the biggest haul in return. That being said, the team doesn't really care how many pitches he throws, just so long as the other teams line up to buy him. Keep an eye on his pitches in the second half, especially if he lands with another club.
