Hamels Hurt, Aumont Starting, Amaro Dumb
Ruben Amaro, talking to Mike Missanelli a few weeks ago, said he can’t take the risks of players getting hurt into account when wanting to trade them. “Should we get lesser value out of a player just because we’re worried about him getting hurt?” Ruben asked Missanelli, showing what he really thought of the implication. And today, the Phillies’ most valuable trade chip is hurt.
Cole Hamels has been scratched from his planned start tomorrow due to a “mild hamstring injury.” Phillippe Aumont will make his first major league start, and Amaro will have learned nothing.
