Cole Hamels Pretends To Be Rugged Old School Pitcher And Admits To Hitting Bryce Harper Intentionally
“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. I remember when I was a rookie, the strike zone was really, really small and you didn’t say anything. That’s the way baseball is. Sometimes the league is protecting certain players. It’s that old-school prestigious way of baseball. “I’m not going to injure a guy. They’re probably not going to like me for it but I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t trying to do it. I think they understood the message and they threw it right back. That’s the way, and I respect it. They can say whatever they want.”
Whole Camels, ladies and gentleman! The last of a dying breed. One of those old school veterans who came from an era of hard nosed baseball. A grizzled baseball lifer that reminds us of the Bob Gibsons and Bob Fellers of the world.
For sure not. What a fucking bitch. This Keanu Reeves motherfucker is softer than cream cheese in the oven and now decides that because Bryce Harper is 19 and tearing the league up he’s gonna pretend to be the tough guy. Sure, Harper’s got a haircut like a total cocksucker. And I bet he is a total cocksucker. But he hasn’t done anything disrespectful yet, and even if he did, Cole Hamels ain’t the guy to put him in his place. Its like the quintessential “You mad, bro?” moment. Harper has been ripping it up. Highlight reel, top 10 material. Doing things that only guys like Ken Griffey Jr. did at this age. And Cole Hamels doesn’t like it and decides to plunk him thinking he’s some old school pitching crusader? Take a hike dude. Drilling a dude for no reason other than his early season success is just about the least old school, least manly thing you can do. Its like a catty bitch move.
I love that Harper promptly rounded the bases and stole home on him too. Like alright you wanna do some of this dick measuring gamesmanship, 2 can play at that game.
PS – Harper’s hair and persona is nothing short of a WWF character. I would love to see a dude like that on the Mets
