”I was trying to hit him,” the Philadelphia lefty said. ”I’m not going to deny it.”
Isn’t that a lot like telling the police officer to check under the seat because I have some illegal substance there? Come on, man! You have to know you are going to get in trouble and fined for this. It was premeditated. He went on to comment,
”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. 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,” Hamels said.
”But I think unfortunately the league’s protecting certain players and making it not that old-school, prestigious way of baseball,” he said.
Enjoy the fine and suspension.
Cole Hamels is a Bonehead!
