Brewers manager not concerned with Cole Hamels’ rivalry comments

Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell is not too concerned with Cole Hamels’ rivalry comments made on Monday.

After the Brewers beat Hamels’ Chicago Cubs on a walk-off fielder’s choice Monday, Hamels dismissed the notion that the Cubs-Brewers is a big rivalry. Instead, he said most of the fans in attendance — even at Miller Park — were Cubs fans.

Asked about Hamels’ comments on Tuesday, Counsell talked his way around the subject.

Counsell is right — the game should be enjoyed for what it was, regardless of whether or not it was a “rivalry” matchup. What matters is both teams are involved in the playoff race, and it was a great September ballgame.
