By Hamels announcing he was purposely trying to hit and quite possibly injure a player Hamels suspension is well deserved. You announce you tried to hurt someone in the real world you wind up in CRIMINAL court.

Oh yeh, takes a real man to throw a 90 mph pitch at a person to mark their terrority like dog. These plunkers must consider home plate and batter's box their very own fire hydrant. Gangsters fight over territory all the time.

Not good baseball. Very unprofessional to say the least. 1 week suspension is not enough.
