Amid the recent comments made by Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez about the completely one-sided Phillies/Mets rivalry, Cole Hamels was asked by a fan to rank the toughest teams in the league for the upcoming season.

“I think the Phillies are definitely at the top of the list right now,” Hamels answered. “The last team besides us to win a World Series was the 2007 Red Sox and that was like a thousand years ago.”

Hamels was then prodded by the fan to give his position for the Mets on his list.

“Until you mentioned them just now, I honestly forgot that they were actually still a major league team,” Hamels said. “With all of the choking they do, it’s really hard to put them on any list with respectable teams like the Phillies. But if I had to rank them, they would probably be somewhere between those Puppy Bowl puppies and the Pirates.”
