PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Cole Hamels is second only to the Mets’ David Wright, according to a survey conducted by, wait for it, CougarLife.com.
You never know what you’re going to end up writing about when you show up to work, do you?
Cougar Life, a dating website for “divorcees, single moms, and sexy singles,” who are looking for a “young stud,” conducted a survey to find out which MLB player its members would like to ’round the bases with’ (their words). Their 11,000 respondents liked Cole Hamels quite a bit.
Hamels came in second, Wright in first, and the Dodgers’ Matt Kemp rounded out the top three.
“Our recent survey showed that many of our female members enjoy watching sports, and love baseball in particular,” Marlo Jordan, the site’s spokesperson said in a statement. “With all those virile young men rounding the bases in form fitting pants, what’s not to like?”
The rest of the top ten:
4) Carlos Gonzalez (Colorado Rockies)
5) Robinson Cano (Yankees)
6) Anthony Rizzo (Chicago Cubs)
7) Miguel Cabrera (Detroit Tigers)
8) Buster Posey (San Francisco, Giants)
9) Joe Mauer (Minnesota Twins)
10) Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals)
