Earthquake or Cole Hamels going to the DL? Sadly, it was both. But clearly, this is the universe’s response to the Hamels DL move. The universe, and all Phillies fans, are NOT happy.
However, the Phillies are saying that Hamels will start on Monday. But the move gave them a chance to add a player; utility man Pete Orr has been recalled from Triple-A.
As for the earthquake, it originated in Virginia and was around 5.9 on the Richter scale. Reports have come from as far north as Massachusetts and as far south as North Carolina. I am in Dover, DE and the entire house shook for about 30 seconds. I jumped up and moved away from anything that could fall on me, grabbed my son and went outside to see what happened.
Everyone in the neighborhood was doing the same thing; standing in their front yards, looking around, trying to figure out what happened.
And here is some reaction from Phillies, reporters & others:
Roy Halladay thumbed his nose at the earth and kept right on working out…classic.
Here is the line-up for tonight’s game: Victorino CF, Polanco 3B, Utley 2B, Pence RF, Mayberry 1B, Francisco LF, Valdez SS, Schneider C, Worley P.
