John Farrell is a pussy
No, John Farrell is protecting his players. An Oriole gets hit tonight and you think they won't throw back at the Jays? Seeing Bautista beaned is bad enough, I don't want to see Escobar or Lind get a ball in the ribs.
Call me crazy but I don't want to see anyone hit by a pitched ball. Pussy, I know.
Also, there's that. A lot of baseball fans are quick to call hockey players troglodytes for dropping the gloves, so let's not promote the baseball equivalent.
Blood. BLOOOOOOOD. BLOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!also colby rasmus !!!
How about being a little discriminating here? Drill 'em if they've thrown at your players, or if they've done something else egregious (spikes up into your shortstop, calling for a flyball on the basepaths, etcetera). Refrain if something non-intentional went down.
Send forth the witticisms from on high
