Nope. Was wrong. It’s Jim Leyland.
On his radio show last night, Leyland said that he would have suspended Hamels for 15 games.[Detroit News via The Big Lead]
"I think five games is way too light," Leyland said. "Personally, if I was making that vote, it would be a 15-game suspension — at least.
"I don't know Cole Hamels, so I certainly don't have any qualms with Cole Hamels. I don't know the man. I know he's a very good pitcher, a very talented guy.
"If my pitcher went out and, almost in a braggadocious way, talked about hitting a guy and that 'I did it on purpose.' (a five-game suspension) is not enough. There's no way.
Why do I get the sense that Leyland would go ballistic if a 15-game suspension for a bean ball was given to his pitcher?
