Some years, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel doesn't decide who his opening day starter will be until a few weeks have passed in spring training.

Other years, he knows all along, but won't reveal it.

This year, Manuel named his opening day starter right out of the gate. To no surprise, Cole Hamels will get the ball April 5 against Atlanta.

``Oh, you might as well go ahead and pencil him in,'' Manuel said after the first spring workout for pitchers and catchers. ``There's no sense BSing.''

Hamels was the MVP of the National League Championship Series and the World Series.

The Phils will get their World Series rings before their April 8 game against Atlanta.
