Phillies break out
MINNEAPOLIS -- Have fun. The Phillies have tried to beat that mantra into their brains during their recent struggles. But they showed they still know how to laugh a little bit on Tuesday when several teammates sported red t-shirts with the Liberty Bell and "Fake Tough" printed on the front.

"Fake tough" should sound familiar to Phillies fans because Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo called Cole Hamels "fake tough" after Hamels said he intentionally hit Bryce Harper with a pitch last month in Washington. Hunter Pence apparently purchased the shirts and Hamels donned one, although he had no plans to talk about it on Tuesday.

"I'm not commenting on that," Hamels said with a smile. "I'm just wearing it because I'm trying to be a good teammate. That's it."
