Cole Hamels says he was just trying to bring back some old-time baseball. Major League Baseball says he was being dangerous. Hamels was suspended for five games Monday after hitting Bryce Harper with a pitch in Sunday night’s game. Hamels said after the game that the beaning was intentional, as he was trying to welcome the 19-year-old phenom to the big leagues. Many welcomed Hamels...
Washington Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo went on the attack Monday after Phillies ace Cole Hamels plunked star rookie outfielder Bryce Harper.
Hamels admitted he intentionally hit the 19-year-old phenom in the first inning Sunday night, telling reporters afterward it was his way of saying, "Welcome to the big leagues."
But Rizzo was not amused, telling The Washington...

What could Josh Hamilton do for an encore after going 5-5, blasting 4 homers and breaking an American League record of 18 total bases on Tuesday? Well, slide across the rain-soaked tarp at Camden Yards like an 8-year-old on a Slip-N-Slide on the 4th of July, of course. Check out the video above as Ham-Bone leads a pack of six other Rangers who...
Major League Baseball has suspended Cole Hamels, of the Philadelphia Phillies, for intentionally hitting Bryce Harper in the first inning of last night’s game. Without Hamels’ own admission, it is highly unlikely that any suspension would have been rendered. After yesterday’s game, Hamels openly admitted that he threw at Harper. Without his admission, MLB would have...

True "old school" baseball player, Bryce Harper, being congratulated after stealing home against Cole Hamels
Hamels hit Bryce Harper with a pitch in the first inning of last night’s game in Washington, D.C., on purpose, with the goal of “sending a message” to the Nationals rookie.
Well, Bryce Harper...
Last night Josh Hamilton added his name to the baseball record books. He picked up 18 total bases in a game while going 5-for-5 with 4 HR's and a double. Hamilton's talent is never in question, just his health. Right now he is healthy and tearing it up. He has corrected his day night split problem from years past with special eye drops he uses before day games. He is living...
The night was dominated by one ultra-rare occurrence that had only happened 15 times before: Cesar Izturis's home run for the Brewers, the 16th home run of his career. I suppose a few people were also talking about the four home runs Josh Hamilton put up against the Baltimore Orioles last night, too.
The rest of Tuesday's trots will be up later this afternoon, but here...

“Just because we share some organs doesn’t mean you can’t hit 2 two-run homers for each of us!” Josh Hamilton had a night that makes you feel like you’re seven years old again. You remember it. When the birds chirped, it made you smile. When your dad carried you on his shoulders, you were on top of the world. When you peed the bed, no one tried to commit you to...
What more can I say about Josh Hamilton that hasn't been said by everyone on Twitter and mass media outlets? He went 5/5 with four homers and a double last night, setting an AL record with 18 total bases. Just for the hell of it, Hamilton drove in eight runs too. Perhaps ironically, all of Hamilton's homers were two run shots that scored Elvis Andrus. Huh, imagine that....
Well another week in the 2012 MLB Season is in the books, and so far each one brings more excitement and drama than the last.
And this week history was made both good and bad.
First, the Yankees are learning what life is like without the greatest closer in the history of baseball. Losing Mariano Rivera to a torn ACL and a newly discovered blood clot did not just take a toll on Yankees...
It’s been two weeks since the last WiR, so let’s whip through everything really quick. The last week in April saw the Rangers abuse the Yankees, and then lose three series in a row to the Rays, Blue Jays and Indians. Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre were both in and out of the lineup, and [...]
