Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said the Padres shouldn't be distressed by the sweep (my FanHouse story). The team's pitching and defense, he added, remain formidable. A few years ago, when I asked Cole Hamels what it would be like to call Petco Park home, his face lit up like a child's on the first day of summer vacation. Hamels seemed in his bliss on Sunday. So did Phillies fans all three games here.
