I guess we should reward people who lie after games and penalize players for telling the truth, or just get rid of post game interviews so people can’t throw out the truth to the media.
Cole Hamels was suspended five games today by Major League Baseball for saying he intentionally hit 19-year-old Bryce Harper with a 93 mph fastball. “It’s just, ‘Welcome to the big leagues,’” Hamels said. “I was trying to hit him. I mean, I’m not going to deny it.”
So everybody should never come out and say the truth, we should all lie everyday.
Jordan Zimmermann pitcher for the Washington Nationals hit Cole Hamels with a pitch later in the game, but Zimmermann lied after the game so he will not be punished with a five game suspension.
If Hamels begins his suspension tonight he would not miss a start because of the day off on Thursday. Hamels was also fined, no word on an appeal yet.
