Phillies’ Cole Hamels Rips the Commissioner’s Office Over All-Star Game Rule

Posted by Frank Klose


Rob Neyer posted this quick blurb with this quote from Cole Hamels:

I'd love to pitch. Tuesday is a bullpen day. It's usually the day I feel the best. It's one of those things where people who don't play the game make the rules.

Hamels, you see, was ineligible to pitch the All-Star game since he pitched on Sunday.  MLB rules state that a pitcher who starts Sunday is ineligible for Tuesday's game.
