Wednesday Morning Links

Links! The Spokane A team has shut down three righthanded pitchers going into the playoffs. Gerry Fraley says that the Rangers have begun to turn their pitching situation around with their acquisitions in the second half. Cole Hamels was the Rangers’ nominee for the Roberto Clemente award (for character and philanthropy, among other things) for the third year in a row, despite now being a Chicago Cub. Mike Minor pitched out of some jams and gave the Ranger offense an opportunity to secure the win yesterday. Today may mark the last time Mike Scioscia comes to town as the Angels’...

Cole Hamels named National League Pitcher of the Month

Cole Hamels named National League Pitcher of the Month

The Cubs lefty was outstanding in August. Cole Hamels might wind up being the best acquisition by anyone during the trade season in 2018. And he’s already received an award. Tuesday he was named National League Pitcher of the Month for August. During August Hamels made six starts, went 4-0 with an 0.69 ERA, threw 39 innings, allowed 28 hits and 11 walks for a 1.000 WHIP and struck out 38. He threw the Cubs’ only complete game of the season August 23 at Wrigley Field against the Reds, an eight-hit, one-run effort with seven strikeouts. Hamels has been a godsend to a rotation that was...

Chicago Cubs: Cole Hamels says Cubs and Brewers isn’t a rivalry yet

Over the past two seasons, the rivalry between the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers has seemed alive and well, as the two have battled it out in the race for the National League Central. But Cole Hamels thinks differently about the so-called rivalry. After another dominant outing, this time against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller […] Chicago Cubs: Cole Hamels says Cubs and Brewers isn’t a rivalry yet - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rangers nominate long-gone Hamels for Clemente award

There could be an awkward moment during the World Series.Left-hander Cole Hamels could take a break from his pitching duties with the Chicago Cubs to accept the Roberto Clemente award for the Texas Rangers.The Rangers nominated Hamels for the award before the July deal that sent him to the Cubs. He is the only player who has been traded since the nominating process. Major League Baseball unveiled the list of nominees on Tuesday.

Cole Hamels 'living in the moment' during return to Philadelphia

The Cubs' starter won't pitch against his former team this weekend, which will give him plenty of time to bask in adulation from the fans at Citizens Bank Park.

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Phillies series preview

On The Horizon: Cubs vs. Phillies series preview

The Phillies have been a contender this year, but have slipped lately. Can the Cubs take advantage of that? The Phillies have a popular former Cub, Jake Arrieta, in their starting rotation. The Cubs have a popular former Phillie, Cole Hamels, in their starting rotation. Unfortunately for “narrative,” neither one of those men will pitch in this series. This will be Hamels’ first trip back to Citizens Bank Park since he was traded from the Phillies to the Rangers in 2015, so I’d expect him to get a warm welcome from Phillies fans. For more on the Phillies, as always I turn the rest of...

Chicago Cubs: Why Cole Hamels should start first playoff game

If the Chicago Cubs clinch a spot in the postseason, Cole Hamels is the clear choice to start the team’s first playoff game. Cole Hamels has been lights out since the Chicago Cubs acquired him on July 27. If the Cubs make the postseason, Hamels must be the team’s top starting pitcher.

Cubs 1, Mets 1: Oh, the suspense!

A torrential downpour interrupted this game, so it will be finished Wednesday. Cole Hamels vs. Jacob deGrom. A rejuvenated pitcher who’d been lights-out all August against a top Cy Young candidate. That alone would have been enough to make Wednesday night’s game must-see TV, but there was the added “attraction” of watching weather radars for a massive thunderstorm that had been bearing down on the Chicago area all night, and anticipated to hit the North Side around Wrigley Field right around 10 p.m. Would the Cubs and Mets complete their game before the rains hit? Thanks in large...

Chicago Cubs: Primetime pitching matchup takes center stage tonight

As the Chicago Cubs look to push their season-best winning streak to seven games, they’ll look to Cole Hamels to lead them against the Mets’ Jacob deGrom.

The veteran southpaw carries a 0.79 ERA into Tuesday night’s showdown against the […] Chicago Cubs: Primetime pitching matchup takes center stage tonight - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Change of scenery the difference for former Ranger Cole Hamels?

Getting left-hander Cole Hamels out of Arlington's Globe Life Park, the Texas Rangers' home, has contributed to his strong performance with the Chicago Cubs, new teammate Jon Lester told USA Today.Lester said he discussed with Cubs president Theo Epstein the possibility of adding Hamels. Lester said he stressed the unfavorable conditions of Globe Life."Texas is such a hard place to pitch,'' Lester told USA Today. "It's hotter than two hells there, and it's such a hitter's ballpark."Theo told me, 'Let's just get him out of there, bring him to a new place, to a fun atmosphere where you're...

With the revival of Cole Hamels since he came to Chicago, have the Chicago Cubs found this season’s trade revival prize? Move over, Manny Machado.

Chicago Cubs: A race has brought Cole Hamels back to All-Star quality

With their backs against the wall at the non-waiver trade deadline, the Chicago Cubs pulled the trigger on a veteran many thought was past his prime. Wrong.
