Cole Hamels Strives to Throw One Perfect Game A Year

Postby acsguitar » Thu May 17, 2007 11:01 am

Cole Hamels Master of the Universe wrote:"Every year I try to go out there and at least get one (perfect game)," Hamels told reporters.


"I know if I can keep fighting and keep plugging away, I'll be able to go out there and get one every year."


Over under on him throwing a perfect game this year :-]

This is pretty awesome because it shows that Cole Hamels is as bad arse as he tells us he is.


Seriously though I'm not sure i've heard a pitcher ever say he "strives to throw perfect games"

I don't know...I think pretty much every pitcher wants to throw a perfect game every time out. No pitcher wants to give up hits or runs or walks....just because he said it out loud is the only difference I see. Most won't say it out loud because they know its very hard to do and probably just don't want to sound silly. :-?

I agree, yet from the context of the quote it almost sounds like he EXPECTS to throw one each year...or that his goal of one perfect game a year is reasonable. Confidence is a good thing I guess... ;-)

It's all a clever coverup. Cole Hamels can throw a perfect game any time he wants. This is Cole Hamels trying to fit in.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
