Cole Hamels admitted after Sunday night's game that he threw at Bryce Harper on purpose.
Hamels struck Harper in the lower back in the first inning with a 92 mph fastball. It certainly looked intentional, and the left-hander admitted later that it was. I was trying to hit him. I’m not going to deny it. It’s something I grew up watching. That’s what happened. I’m just trying to continue the old baseball. Some people get away from it." Harper had the last laugh, advancing from first base to third base on a Jayson Werth single before stealing home. Hamels could be facing a suspension.
Hames needs to be suspended, and not just a slap on the wrist 5/6/7 days that starting pitchers get. he needs minimum 1 turn missed in the rotation. 10 days at least, closer to 15 would be better. Hamels sent his message to Harper, time for baseball to send it's message to Hamels!
what is Hamels problem with Harper? that Harper likes to have fun playing the game of baseball?
I own Hamels on one team, and still want to see him miss a good amount of time with a suspension.
