A Mets fans' embarrassing Cole Hamels photo gallery set to music from 'Les Miserable'

Pretty much exactly how it sounds.

Sam Maxwell, proprietor of the Mets blog Converted Mets Fan, has put together a video slide show of Cole Hamels' less flattering moments with help from baseball writer Ted Berg. Being a Mets fan, Sam has taken a particular sense of glee in putting them all in a row like this and backing them with music from "Les Miserable."

But, being a Mets fan, his team is probably the most comparable to a musical about life in an endlessly wretched, demoralizing state. So this brief ray of sunlight is permissible. And in Sam's defense, he has selected Hamels as the NL's 2013 Cy Young winner.

Also, it's sort of Cole's fault for, you know, doing these things.
