hey might have gotten away with retaliation had it been more subtle, but Marshall first threw behind Braun, then plunked him in the left hip with his next pitch, whereupon he was tossed by home plate umpire Ted Barrett.
but Marshall first threw behind Braun
Would people be saying how stupid Gibson was if he'd IBBed Braun instead?
Is it just me or does this seem more common - specifically - guys missing with the first HBP attempt, and then hitting the guy on the next pitch - seems like everyone of these beanball wars lately includes a brush back pitch (or one behind the guy) and then the HBP itself on the next pitch.
Hitting a batter instead of IBBing him is something immature people do in an MLB video game.
Mass executive firings cannot come too soon.
thanks to mlb's great app i touched base with the arizona side of things and they were besides themselves with glee at the team hitting braun nad pretty much dismissed the homer as ancillary
That wouldn't excuse the D-Backs, but at least that would at least put it within the realm of normal baseball stupidity.
Why is it immature in a video game? Those guys don't have central nervous systems, and are thus incapable of feeling pain.
Why is it immature, while playing a video game, to accomplish the same thing with one pitch that would otherwise take four?
i mentioned this in the dugout. watching it in real time was somewhat surreal. thanks to mlb's great app i touched base with the arizona side of things and they were besides themselves with glee at the team hitting braun nad pretty much dismissed the homer as ancillary
braun has been struggling with his thumb and ribs the last sevearl weeks. he's been pretty puny at the plate. i know it's all hip to not consider hot streaks or slumps as significant but anyone watching the brewers for more than 2 minutes could tell braun is not himself and lucroy is hitting out of his mind.
that seems like a whackadoodle trade off to me
Hitting a batter instead of IBBing him is something immature people do in an MLB video game. That is not something that should be happening in real life. Gibson should be suspended for this bullshit.
Lots of anti-Brewers fire in AZ, you could see fans quite annoyed with the road team fan presence in the seats last night too.
But imagine there was a dog so unrelentingly dumb it never understood why you get mad when it shreds your belongings.
Harveys, I believe we are talking about pitches that are not in fact strikes - but balls framed to LOOK like strikes. good for Lucroy, but if I'm an ump I'd rather call a strike a strike, as you say, and a ball a ball. just seems weird to keep getting suckered by certain catchers and not make an adjustment to remove the sleight of hand...
