This is great.

According to a blog post on the Cincinnati Enquirer’s website (with picture included!), Phillies starter Cole Hamels was spotted having a pre-game lunch and enjoying some Sunday afternoon football at a sports bar called Cadillac Ranch in downtown Cincy.

Hamels is scheduled to start Game 3 tonight against Reds righty Johnny Cueto and can knock the opposition out of the postseason.  Aware of that, a couple of Reds supporters sent Hamels two shots of tequila in an effort to knock him off his game.

Hamels, of course, denied the drinks and a few Phillies fans swooped in to take advantage of the already-poured liquor, telling the left-hander “You can’t drink those!”

“A” for effort, Cincinnati.

    You make a good point.

    Being David Wells is no way to go though life, unless you’re actually David Wells.

    This would have been more interesting if it had been Josh Hamilton

    That would be pretty sick if someone did that to Hamilton. Not that I’d put anything past crazy people.

    Cole didn’t need any alcohol to SHUT OUT the Mighty Reds tonight. Cincinnati’s broadcasters bragged about their offense all year, and by gosh, they were right–it was very offensive.
    I think I’ll listen to the Reds’ post-post-game call-in show. I want to hear the die-hard idiots blaming the umpires, the league, MLB, the Commissioner, Phillie fans, blah blah blah…

    He just delayed his consumption until after the game in the clubhouse.

    The TBS announcers could not have been any less homers for Cincinnati than the Reds broadcasters…Brian and Joe were absolutely pathetic. I hope the BJ that they gave to “Joey Votto-matic” was memorable enough for them because this series is history.

    Having a perfect game under your belt isn’t bad if you are anyone else

    Yea it was pretty easy to tell that they werent Phillies fans …. they harped on every missed call and strike that went the Phillies way and didnt say a word when it favored the Reds …. they down played the Reds struggles and made excuses for them and then magnified everything the Phillies did wrong …. its to be expected though, people always want to see the underdog prevail …. add in the fact that every media group in every sport seems to hold a grudge against Philadelphia sports teams and its pretty obvious which team they were pulling for.

    find me someone that even picked against the phillies let alone didn’t predict a sweep. there are a lot more that thought the phillies would win then there were then thought the phillies would lose. the announcers are “pulling” for either team

    Whitey Ford would have done the shots and then gone an pitched a shutout.

    They should have brought up the Utley HBP again. There might have been some fan somewhere that hadn’t heard it the other 9 times they talked about it last night.
    Or maybe they should have brought up the Shane Victorino robbery of Brandon Phillips. They acted like Shane-o jumped over the wall and caught the ball in his teeth. No one robbed Brandon Phillips of his ‘Easily extra base hit’. He hit a ball that Victorino had to run for. And he did what any MLB outfielder should do. Caught the ball on the run. He made a good play, but no one was robbed, there was no injustice, nothing. A hard hit ball was caught.
    Talk about homers. I guess they just wanted it to be more than 3 games so they could get paid to do more commentary.

    Several weeks ago. someone asked me what I thought of Jeter’s act on “getting hit”. My answer was, Utley does that all the time (said this Phillies fan). There isn’t a player on a major league roster that wouldn’t have taken that “hit by pitch”.
