Time For Some Action

Yahoo! Sports' Tim Brown reported, following the Phillies World Series game 5 victory, that Phillies pitchers Cole Hamels and Brett Myers had a confrontation in the team's clubhouse that was only verbal and was defused before it escalated further.

The exchange stemmed from Hamels' comments to a reporter after his game 3 loss on Saturday. Hamels, in regards to his rough and rugged season said, "I can't wait for it to end." The remark was taken somewhat out of context, as Hamels meant to speak of his struggles, not necessarily about his team's season.

The story Brown reports says that Myers asked Hamels, "What are you doing here? I thought you quit." Hamels then responded with a profane remark. Before the encounter became worse, a team official escorted Myers away. Cole's comment to the media apparently has angered some teammates.

Myers was warming up in the bullpen during the ninth inning of Monday night's game 5 win, while Ryan Madson gave up a run before recording a save.

Both Myers and Hamels have histories with violence, as Myers was arrested on charges of domestic violence in 2006. In 2005, while pitching in the minors, Hamels broke his hand in a bar fight. So, you know what that means...
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LET'S GET READYYY TO RUMBLLLLLLLLE!!!!

-----------------------------

Afternoon update- some reporters are squashing the story, saying the two were just "breaking stones" and there was no ill will intended. Leslie Gudel of CSN says that Myers wasn't aware of Hamels' remarks on Saturday. For real? Maybe. Damage control? Also maybe.

Hopefully it's no big deal. Although a Myers/Hamels cage fight would be entertaining. I got money on Brett.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

Former Phillie Charlie Hayes helping to groom future Phillies

Charlie Hayes, image- Jay Floyd A casual conversation about baseball overheard by front office personnel in the stands at Williamsport’s Bowman Field led a former Phillie back home to help guide the organization's stars of tomorrow. Former Phillies regular Charlie Hayes was in attendance chatting up a friend about the game, while his son, newly drafted infielder Ke’Bryan Hayes, a first round draft choice of the Pirates in 2015, was on the field beginning his journey in professional baseball.   Nearby, Phillies director of player development Joe Jordan became intrigued and initiated contact with Hayes in the stands.    “I had told him at that time, if there’s any way I can help, don’t be afraid to call me and, you know, he called me in November, said he had a spot for me and I said I’ll take it and here I am,” Hayes explained. The time was ideal this off-season, according to Hayes, as his youngest child had moved out of the house and he finally felt the freedom to dive back i
