Hamels having better Spring in '10 than '08

Here's three sentences. Hamels pitched yesterday. Hamels got hit around. Fans are concerned about Hamels. Those three sentences sum up what I found myself reading as I went on my computer and read some blogs and comments. Don't be so quick to put too much stock into Spring Training numbers, but if you want to, look at these:
