There are plenty of Phillies who’ll be answering questions soon.
But at the moment, some have chosen to remain quiet. And that some is Cole Hamels.
Cole left without speaking to anyone yesterday, after a completely unnecessary 5-1 loss to the worst team in baseball that put him at 1-7 thus far in a year when many had picked him as the NL Cy Young winner. Today, that trend continued as he gave a polite “GTFO out of my face” to no one and instead went with the far more actually polite, “No thank you.”
Ryan Howard, on the other hand, was all ready to spill his guts about the knee soreness that’s been keeping him out of the lineup.
Ryan Howard: “Right now (the knee) feels pretty good, but we’ll keep an eye on it.”

So doctors will continue to look at and hopefully treat Howard’s knee as he goes through the uneviable task of living with himself as the reality of his contract’s insanity sets in.
“Right now, it feels pretty good,” Howard said of a situation which he had described earlier as “worst case scenario.”
Glad one of us can relax.
