I'm surprised he hasn't released a hit piece on Jose's bat flip yesterday yet.

Yeah he probably shouldn't be batting cleanup when his minor league slash line is .145/.188/.158/.345 but then you have to ask who is your 2nd choice to bat cleanup if he isn't. Rough lineup, blame Pillar.

At least he threw at the leg. Orioles/Royals/Rangers would have thrown at his head.

How do they not eject Teheran immediately? I don't get the warning effect here when that's very obvious given the context of the series. I get the Jays aren't innocent in all this, but that's so **** blatant. They didn't even try to mask it.

You both look really foolish right about now. Never in doubt.

Can't believe Smoak isn't playing tonight. Should have stuck him in centre. He can do it!

MLB umps are a joke. Look how long it took for something to be finally done to stop that Red Sox/O's beef.

I'm gonna need some links to some day one posts.
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

Nothing. He gets ejected if he hits anyone. Basically can't even pitch inside now. Another reason why umps putting on a warning after the first hit batter of the game is so dumb.

Jose deserved it. Glad he took his medicine with no further issues. We had enough drama last year.
