Saturday Matine: Cole’s Last Stand at the Bank?

Jul 21, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

The Phillies are back at it this afternoon in a 4:05 start against the San Francisco Giants. The story of the day is the fact that there is the chance that today's start by Cole Hamels could be his last at Citizens Bank Park as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies are back at it this afternoon in a 4:05 start against the San Francisco Giants. The story of the day is the fact that there is the chance that today’s start by Cole Hamels could be his last at Citizens Bank Park as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies. I think we can all agree we don’t want to see that happen, but the possibility that he will be dealt before the deadline is real.

Hamels (11-4, 3.07) will go up against San Fran ace Matt Cain (10-3, 2.56) in what should be a pretty entertaining pitcher’s duel. Cain has had dominate numbers against the Phillies he’ll face this afternoon.

So there’s that.

It’s a 4:05 start today for the FOX national telecast. Good news for you Philly transplants.
