Cole Hamels bolts to the birthin’ room

My son was born the day after I saw “Batman Begins” at the theater. If he would have come sooner, Mrs. Shyster would have been on her own. They’re called priorities, Cole Hamels. Think about it:

Phillies starter Cole Hamels has left the ballpark with his wife, a former “Survivor” contestant, who is in labor with the couple’s first child.

Hamels gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings against the Rockies in Game 2 on Thursday. He left after throwing 82 pitches and rushed out of the dugout when he was pinch hit for in the fifth inning.

In other news, at least he now has a use for the minivan.

I wondered if you were comment on this. On the basis of the interviews with Cole and the Mrs.that I’ve read, I wouldn’t be surprised if she planned this.

But seriously.  The Rabbit wins.

If Ol’ Cole were pitching better he wouldn’t have to jump into the worst Ford minivan ever, he could have chosen:
a) “I’se don’t know nothin’ ‘bout birthin’ no babies”
b) “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn”

And I agree The Rabbit wins.

So are you saying he should have stayed in the game instead of being present at the birth of his child? Really?

Maggio—I’m pretty sure that everyone is being pretty tongue in cheek here.
