Your Top 10 Minor Leaguers
1. Dylan Bundy - RHP, Low-A Delmarva (BAL) - 5 GS, 17 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 25/2 K/BB - He pitched on Monday and finally allowed his first hit AND allowed a walk, but has still not gone past four innings yet in any of his starts. This happens a lot at the Low-A level as top prospects tend to get babied, but even now, it seems like Baltimore is being a bit too protective of its prized right-hander. That being said, Baltimore is 19-9 right now. 19-9! CHRIS DAVIS HAS A WIN! Robert Andino is hitting over .300! Who the hell IS this team? And why did they sign Miguel Tejada?
2. Jurickson Profar - SS, Double-A Frisco (TEX) - .259/.315/.464, 3 HR, 9 BB, 22 K, 4-for-4 SB - He has a 10-game hit streak going and his batting .310 over that span with five extra base hits, and is still south of 20 years old. He is still a very sexy prospect and now that he has started hitting the bal...
BEST OF MAXIM
This is pretty awesome. Cole Hamels hit Bryce Harper in the first inning, and Harper moved up to third on a Jayson Werth single. Hamels threw over to first to check on Werth, and as soon as he released the pitch, Harper made a beeline towards the plate, and slid in safely. You can say what you want to say about Harper's attitude and how the media portrays him, but there is no...
Bryce Harper stole home last night in the first inning, adding to his already impressive start in the big leagues. The guy in this picture was sitting behind home plate, and it seems like he’s pretty fired up about Bryce’s work thus far.

"It’s just, ‘Welcome to the big leagues. I was trying to hit him. I mean, I’m not going to deny it." (Cole Hamels, via CSN Philly.com, 5/7/2012)
"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." (Cole Hamels...
Cole Hamels admits it: He plunked rookie phenom Bryce Harper on purpose.
''I was trying to hit him,'' the Philadelphia lefty said. ''I'm not going to deny it.''
That startling bit of honesty came after Hamels nailed the Washington teen with a fastball in the small of the back his first time up during the Phillies' 9-3 win Sunday night. The...
Nationals rookie steals home in retaliation

Yep, this is a rivalry. Get on board.

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels admitted last night that he intentionally hit Washington Nationals rookie phenom Bryce Harper with a pitch in the first inning of Sunday night’s game.

Better late than never, it's your weekly announcing schedule for Major League Baseball. Surprisingly, rookie/lightning rod Bryce Harper and his Nationals (I can't believe I just typed that) are not featured nationally at all this week. Instead, it's a steady dose of the usual suspects with the weekend's marquee games focusing on the AL West battle between the...

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels has been officially suspended for 5 games by Major League Baseball after he admitted to intentionally throwing at Washington Nationals young phenom Bryce Harper. I can’t say that I’m very surprised about the suspension. The punishment fits the crime as Hamels will only have to miss one start in the Phillies rotation. If Hamels would have...
According to Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki, Cole Hamels has been suspended 5 Games by the MLB for intentionally throwing at Nationals rookie Bryce Harper.
The 5 game suspension was largely in part to Cole openly admitting to plunking Harper during the Phillies 9-3 win on Sunday night. Hamels put it simply:
