Cole Hamels has been suspended for five games after admitting that he intentionally threw a pitch at Bryce Harper.   Too much information, Cole.   Keep it to yourself, dude.

Major League Baseball has suspended Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels for five games.  Hamels confirmed on Sunday night that he intentionally threw a pitch at Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.  Hamels hit Harper with a pitch in the 1st inning of the Phillies 9-3 win on Sunday evening. 

Hamels confirmed with the media that he intentionally meant to hit Bryce Harper.  He called it a "welcome to the big leagues" moment for Harper.  Hamels admitting that he meant to intentionally hit Bryce Harper was just plain stupid.  Major League Baseball had no choice but to suspend Hamels.  Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland actually wanted Hamels to be suspended for 15 games.  Most of the listeners who called "The Noe Show" on Monday either objected with Cole Hamels throwing (or admitting to throwing) at Bryce Harper.  Very few had zero problem with either.
