Like most Phillies fans, we were hoping for Cole Hamels to record his 100th career victory Wednesday night. But that he didn’t only makes what should be his first three goals for 2014 easy to define. Here they are (along with weather-dependent start dates):

1. Earn 100th victory (Phillies game No. 1: Monday, March 31, at Texas)

2. Tie Curt Schilling with 101 wins (Game No. 6: Sunday, April 6, at Wrigley Field)

3. Pass Curt Schilling with 102 wins (Game. No. 11; Saturday, April 12, hosting the Marlins)

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
