A couple talk show hosts on WFAN in New York asked Cole Hamels today if he thought the Mets were choke artists.

He said they were because, well, they were choke artists the last two years.

"Last year and this year I think we did believe that," Hamels said on WFAN. "Three years ago we didn't because they smoked everybody, and I think we all thought they were going to win it all. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But, yeah, that's kind of what we believed and I think we're always going to believe that until they prove us wrong."

One of the show's hosts apparently gave Hamels a chance to back away from his comments.

He didn't.

"For the past two years they've been choke artists," Hamels said.

This apparently has not gone over well in New York. Ruben Amaro Jr. apparently caused a mini-uproar yesterday as well. When asked about the Mets signing Francisco Rodriguez he told Philadelphia reporters, "I don't think it affects us much. They had Billy Wagner for three years and we still beat them the last two years."

Personally, I like it. None of this everybody-in-a-big-league-uniform-is-tough-to-beat stuff. Mix it up a little bit. Why not?
