Chad Qualls: "At Least Cole (Hamels) Was A Man And Didn't Lie About It"
Philadelphia Phillies reliever Chad Qualls implied in a tweet today that Washington Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann is a liar, and not a man for failing to admit that he hit Cole Hamels with a pitch on purpose.
@MorganEnsberg they hit cole right back but said not on purpose. Yeah right. At least cole was a man and didn't lie about it.

There have been several people in the media and within the Nationals organization who have called out Hamels for admitting that he hit 19-year-old Bryce Harper on purpose in last night's game against the Washington Nationals. Hamels told reporters following the game that he threw at Harper because he is "old school."
