Cole Hamels Second-Most Popular Baseball Player…for Cougars

The best news 1-8 Cole Hamels has gotten all year comes from, which has anointed him, after a poll of 11,000 ostensible cougars, the second-hottest baseball player in the universe. #1, much to Hamels’s chagrin, was Mets’ 3B David Wright. (Career states vs. Hamels: .333/1.017 OPS.) Side note: It’s pretty impressive how many damn polls these shady sites manage to take. [Daily News]
