World Series MVP Put in Cop Van

10/31/2008 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels spent the afternoon in NYPD custody yesterday -- but fear not, it wasn't for a bad reason.
Cole Hammel: Click to watch
The World Series MVP hitched a ride in a police van on his way out of Letterman, complete with his own squad of officers watching his back.

Ya gotta figure that either some Rays fan is holding a grudge ... or that's just how Cole rolls.

And I see he has the usual, tall blonde in front of him. Do pro baseballers ever marry anything but...?? Or is that why most of 'em marry more than once? Just askin'.

sparkys nemesis, Some players prefer women with dark hair and some stay married to the same woman (note I did not say stay faithful) but it's not the way to bet.

RAYS FAN    

Ray fans are more mature that the Philly fans.. At least we know how to celebrate without burning vehicles and having riots in our city.

It's HAMELS, not Hammels. It's not like he's totally unknown, & not that hard to spell the man's name correctly.

What a waste of taxpayer money. The player is a millionaire, the Letterman show makes multi-millions. You would think that either the player or show could arrange for car service for the transport. Another example of star-struck cops and celeb ass kissing.

With his looks, his celebrity career is about to take off. Enjoy it, Cole you earned it. You will probably be a Yankee next contract.

I'm sorry Rays fan, exactly what are you celebrating? I forget. Certainly not the World Series ring. There were no riots. And it wasn't a car on fire, it was a dumpster. Tampa Gay doesn't have enough fans to riot, anyway.
