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)

Here are the pitchers with 80 or more career victories for the Phils:
