With all of these postponed and rescheduled games, pretty much the biggest question surrounding the Phillies was how would they manage their starting rotation going forward. We now have an answer. Rich Dubee told reporters this afternoon that Cole Hamels will start Monday, Roy Halladay will start Tuesday, and Cliff Lee will start Wednesday.

The only real takeaways here is that they wanted to keep Hamels on schedule after an extended rest and as David Hale added on Twitter, this allows Halladay to get in a bullpen today.

Dubee also says this set-up allows them to break up the lefties and let Doc throw a pen today to stay on schedule. Best of a bad situation.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply
