Remember when Cole Hamels hit a titanic home run last year – 437 feet! – after coming to the Cubs? I do. Now you do, too.
And in a further effort to remind you of that power, Hamels crushed one tonight in an exhibition against the Red Sox:
That was another SHOT, man. Hamels doesn’t get cheated when he swings hard. And how about new bench coach Mark Loretta jumping quickly on the call?
If Hamels could hit just a few of those this year during the regular season, that’d be pretty sweet, huh? Like, maybe just five of ’em? Just, you know, seven or eight of them? At least ten?
