Hamels finishes strong, gets win number 17

Hamels finished 17-7 with a 3.05 ERA this season following an impressive performance Sunday in a 4-1 victory over Miami at Marlins Park. If Roy Halladay’s new offseason program really can work wonders, and if Cliff Lee finally can enjoy some luck of his own (i.e. better run support), the Phillies should be in the postseason hunt next year.

The Phillies can get back next year. Hamels has been a hallmark of consistency since 2009. He just needs a little help.
