We're just going to have to wait and see with Hamels. Statistically, his performance should be between his good 2008 and bad 2009. From a player standpoint, who knows? He appears to be a bit of a headcase and it's unclear if he'll develop or try to develop additional pitches. People have been suggesting that is a must for Hamels, but in the short term, it would probably make him a worse pitcher in 2010. Fastball, change-up, show me seems like enough to me, he needs to miss the middle of the plate a little more often while at the same time nibble less in early counts.
