"Old school?" Hamels is 29 and at the beginning of Season #7. I not so sure that he knows very much about "Old school."

Aside from the fact that you never throw at anybody for no reason, Hamels was partly correct. In "The Long Season", Jim Brosnan wrote that if a pitcher really wanted to hit a batter, he would throw the pitch in such a way that the batter would react by turning into it, and get hit in the back. Brosnan wrote that in 1959. At least Hamels got the "Old school" technique correct.

Hamels should have been suspended for five games for the pitch, three games for stupidity and two more for showing his ignorance.
