Lol At Cole Hamels

08 May 2012 - 01:33 AM

This dude is such a fuging bitch throwing at Harper.

From ESPN (http://espn.go.com/m...-not-old-school) :

Hamels' first pitch to the 19-year-old Harper, with two out in the bottom of the first inning, landed in the small of Harper's back. After the game, he matter-of-factly admitted that he hit Harper on purpose, claiming he was trying to bring back "old-school" baseball.
"I was trying to hit him," the Philadelphia left-hander said after the Phillies' 9-3 win. "I'm not going to deny it."
Major League Baseball rewarded Hamels' candor by suspending him Monday for five games.
"That's something I grew up watching, that's kind of what happened. So I'm just trying to continue the old baseball because I think some people are kind of getting away from it," Hamels said Sunday. "I remember when I was a rookie the strike zone was really, really small and you didn't say anything because that's the way baseball is.


Bitch please. It isn't old school to bean a guy for no reason whatsoever. Harper had done NOTHING to warrant getting hit.. if he had stared someone down, tried to show someone up, etc.. sure, completely understandable and acceptable.. but Hamels only reasoning was he was a rookie and he wanted to send him a message welcoming him to the bigs.

Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said it best:

"Cole Hamels says he's old school? He's the polar opposite of old school. He's fake tough," Rizzo said, according to the report. "He thinks he's going to intimidate us after hitting our 19-year-old rookie who's eight games into the big leagues? He doesn't know who he's dealing with.
"He thinks he's sending a message to us of being a tough guy. He's sending the polar opposite message. He says he's being honest, well, I'm being honest. It was a gutless chicken sh*t act," Rizzo added, according to the report. "That was a fake-tough act. No one has ever accused Cole Hamels of being old school."
"This goes beyond rivalry and all that stuff," Rizzo added. "This points to, you take the youngest guy in baseball. He's never done a thing. And then Hamels patted himself on the back. Harper's old school. Hitting him on the back, that ain't old school. That's fuging chicken sh*t."


In short:
-Hamels is a try hard wanna be badass
-Harper is a boss who handled it perfectly
-Nationals > Phillies

Early predictions?

11 February 2012 - 05:06 AM

Division Winners:
NL East: Phillies - pitching is still too good, although I think they'll yet again miss out on the WS.
NL Central: Reds - will bounce back and take over the division after the Brewers lost Fielder(and possibly Braun for the roids suspension).
NL West: Diamondbacks - team was already good/exciting to watch. improved over the offseason and they still have a stellar farm loaded with talent. Giants/Dodgers/DBacks will race to the very end for this division, but in the end I think Arizona wins.
NL Wild card: Nationals - One of the best rotations in baseball if Strasburg remains healthy. A lineup full of potential. Team is definitely on the rise, and will make the NL East very interesting for years to come.

AL East: Yankees - hate them, but they'll run away with the division..... then get bounced in the postseason lulz.
AL Central: Detroit - another team that IMO will run away with the division, except they might actually make some noise in the postseason.
AL West: Rangers - Flipped a coin for this. I think the Rangers may be the best team in the AL, but the Angels are really good.
AL Wild card: Blue Jays - Yep. They are a good team and I think they finally take that big step forward and make the playoffs. AL East better look out, this team is no joke. Not only do they have a pretty damn talented major league roster, but they have IMO(and many others opinion) the best farm system in baseball.. Alex Anthopoulos is probably the best general manager in the MLB.

I know it's early for this but oh well. Bored.
