Cole Hamels Meets Talk RadioI'm not usually a fan of trash talk, accusations of overratedness, or discussions that center around the word "choke." But with just about every important baseball figure on an airplane heading home from Las Vegas this afternoon, it's a slow news day, and I thus have no choice but to wade into those waters a bit:
In an interview on WFAN today with Joe Beningo and Evan Roberts, [Cole] Hamels was promoting the Phillies' World Series DVD when he was asked outright, "Do you think the Mets are choke artists?"
We all know what's going to happen next: the New York tabloids will go crazy tomorrow, the Mets fans and then the Mets will follow suit, Hamels will then be forced to walk back his comments a bit, and all will be forgotten until Johan Santana sends a batting practice fastball in the general direction of Hamels' butt sometime next spring. It's all rather silly, really.
Sure, truth is an absolute defense to a slander, but it's still rather silly.

If it looks like a fish and smells like a fish then it’s a fish. Mets fans will need to break some serious Febreze out to take this stink away.

yeah, well what has cole hamels ever done? huh? oh, yeah, right. damn it.

Where exactly do his comments go wrong? Did they choke in 2007? Yes. How about 2008? Yes. So what do Mets fans have to be angry about, at least when it comes to Cole? All he is doing is saying the Mets choked, which everyone knows is true.

‘Choke artists’ is a stupid term. ‘Chokers’ is all you need.

What’s ridiculous is that the Phillies have become the watchdogs of etiquette, when guys like Victorino & Rollins do just as much celebrating and dancing as Reyes does.

Enter Cole Hamels and a brief reprieve of slumbering bats on Wednesday afternoon, who combined to top the Diamondbacks 8-4 and avoid the series sweep.
Its been a disconcerting west coast road trip for the Phillies the past week. Sure, they ended up with a 5-2 record in the work of the past seven games. But with an extended scoring drought and Cliff Lee and Roy Oswalt getting roughed up the past days, a low grumble was building on the local sports talk radio and commentary… jogos de motos

I’ve met few choke artists in my life, like Cole hamels says… You should come and stay for a while in a luxury accommodation in Hermanus for a while and you’ll understand.
