Beaning Joey backfired.

I give the umps credit for not warning the teams before the game. Joey deserved to get beaned and once that was out of the way we played ball.

Nobody deserves that..that was Teheran fastest pitch in 2 years..joey shud have tossed his bat at that clown.

Yep, will never understand how someone throwing a bat a bit higher than normal after hitting a homerun justifies and is considered the equivalent to throwing a ball 95 mph at a person. I would, and have, said the same thing about a Jays pitcher throwing at someone...just one of the most ridiculous things in all of sports.

I mean I can't really think of anything similar in other sports. It'd be like if an NHL player celebrated a goal a bit too much, and then had to stand there with no equipment on while the other teams hardest shooter wired a slap shot at him.

I think without the 7 beanings, Freeman injury, and Pillar being a jackass, this doesn't happen.

It's very annoying that there are so many "unofficial" rules when it comes to MLB pitchers. Can't show him up, can't do this, can't do that. Yet a pitcher can bean someone and then the public will just shrug "it's just payback".

I think Loup breaking someone's hand for 2 months (possibly/probably intentionally) is probably the worst thing a Jay did this week. Pitchers shouldn't be allowed to try to hurt people or "send messages." Ever been hit by a baseball? Those things are **** dangerous, moreso if they are coming at you at 95 mph. Why is it baseball tradition that pitchers allowed to "send a message" in such a dangerous way whenever they feel insulted? How is it that people consider a bat flip where NO ONE GETS HURT even worse? If a pitcher can bean someone whenever he's feeling upset, then by that logic a batter should be able to whack someone with their bat to "send a message" whenever he's feeling upset.

All these old baseball traditions are so backwards.

when its obvious guys do that intentionally they should be ejected on the spot, especially when the ump knows the history... warning should be given before the game, stupid to let them hit a guy on purpose, THEN warn both teams AFTER. meaning if other team does something in response, theyre the ones now punished. stupid ****. also tired of hearing announcers justifying "let the players deal with it."
