There's a bunch of rage in cardinals sites and boards about the hit. I personally didn't really mind the HPC, but I do think Harriso putting his shoulder into yadi's head was excessive,but I think some of that is from Molina ducking down more. Also seems to be a wave of support on getting Home plate collisions banned or at least the rules changed some in cardinals circles.

So long as catchers are allowed to block the plate rather than apply a tag as it would be done at second or third base, we're going to have these collisions. I think the game would be better off without them and without the take-out slides at second base. Leave that football mentality on the gridiron.
are they moving alvarez to first base?
on those cardinal boards was there any discussion of the beaning of harrison at his next at bat?
It's important to remember that Harrison's really short. Listed at 5'8", and even that might be a stretch. He doesn't have to bend down all that far for his shoulder to end up at a catcher's head level.
as to molina he is a wonderful catcher but as a player he is a punk. he gripes about everything, he is super sensitive and takes offense at nothing and if given the chance to rough someone up at the plate he would do it in a heartbeat. anyone who watches nl central baseall knows these things.
i hope he is ok but as a fan one struggles to have that much sympathy for someone who if given the opportunity would have planted harrison in the face and then slammed the ball to the ground as a celebration afterward.
What the hell was Chris Carpenter's problem? I saw a clip this morning of him yelling at someone from the dugout, but I'm not sure what the context was.
He was just being Chris Carpenter.

I'm on Harvey's side for the most part re: Molina, but his response is good here. That's a clean play. He chose to block the plate. He paid for that choice. The fact that Cards fans are enraged is a function of them being Cards fans.
All the players from competing divisions thinks the other teams are the punks.
Bunch of overly sensitive ####### if you ask me.
From my limited experience, it does seem that all of the players in the NL Central are punks. Except the Cubs, who just suck. And the Astros, who seem to be made up exclusively of laid of steelworkers and out of work cattle rustlers.
if it's a minor contingent they are all over st. louis
he's slugged .362 in night games this year
Wasn't personalizing it, didn't know you were a republican. The republican shot is just because I believe most republicans don't have the ability to grasp facts or simple logic.(global warming deniers, evolution deniers, marriage is historically not about selling your daughter off into slavery...and that money trickles down...silly beliefs that go contrary to facts, evidence and logic.)
