The Question: Old school or out of line?

The Phillies and Nationals may have officially become rivals on Sunday thanks to an exchange of hit batsmen.

Cole Hamels hit Bryce Harper as a "Welcome to The Show" gesture, and a little later, took a plunking from opposite number Jordan Zimmermann.

Then today, Nats GM Mike Rizzo called out Hamels for what he felt was an inappropriate act.

So what do YOU think?

Whose side are you on? Was Hamels' pitch just a bit of "old school baseball," the kind of thing that both sides understand and nobody should worry too much about? Or was it as out of bounds as Rizzo argued?
