Phillies NLCS rotation takes shape

Hello from the postseason of weather extremes, where temps in the low-40s present quite a contrast to the 93-degree paradise at Game 2. A quick note on the Phillies’ rotation: Charlie Manuel just said that his Game 5 starter would almost certainly be Cole Hamels, the logical choice. A separate team source said that, barring unforeseen circumstances, the rotation for the rest of the rotation would likely be: Game 4: Joe Blanton Game 5: Hamels Game 6: Pedro Martinez Game 7: Cliff Lee.

Hello from the postseason of weather extremes, where temps in the low-40s present quite a contrast to the 93-degree paradise at Game 2.

 
A quick note on the Phillies’ rotation: Charlie Manuel just said that his Game 5 starter would almost certainly be Cole Hamels, the logical choice. A separate team source said that, barring unforeseen circumstances, the rotation for the rest of the rotation would likely be:
 
Game 4: Joe Blanton
Game 5: Hamels
Game 6: Pedro Martinez
Game 7: Cliff Lee.
 

No surprises there, as everyone would be on full rest.  J.A. Happ will remain in the bullpen through the NLCS, the source said.
