Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post called Nats GM Mike Rizzo this morning. And Rizzo unloaded on Cole Hamels like a freakin’ battleship bombarding the coastline:

Nationals General Manager Mike Rizzo responded to Cole Hamels’ admission he drilled Bryce Harper on purpose last night in harsh terms, saying MLB should suspend Hamels and calling out Hamels as “fake tough.”

“Players take care of themselves,” Rizzo said after I called him this morning. “I’ve never seen a more classless, gutless chicken [bleep] act in my 30 years in baseball … It was a gutless chicken [bleep] [bleeping] act. That was a fake-tough act. No one has ever accused Cole Hamels of being old school.”

“Cole Hamels says he’s old school? He’s the polar opposite of old school. He’s fake tough. He thinks he’s going to intimidate us after hitting our 19-year rookie who’s eight games into the big leagues? He doesn’t know who he’s dealing with.”

All of you people who think I was overreacting and being melodramatic about this can now stop commenting and start sending emails to the Nats.

    Well according to Brian Sabean, the most gutless thing that he’s ever seen is when Buster Poser was bowled over at the plate. And according to Bob Brenley, the most chicken shit thing that he’s ever seen is when Ben Davis bunted to break up Curt Schillings no hitter. So, does this trump both of those? Or all 3 of these guys just a bunch of blowhards?
