Perry: Justin Verlander: Richard Sherman would get thrown at in MLB

If the NY Super Bowl crowd doesn’t break into a “Goodbye Allie” chant against Richard Sherman, I’ll be very disappointed.

Seahawks corner Richard Sherman (forbearance please: there’s a baseball hook forthcoming) announced names and shouted nice things about himself following his team’s victory over the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. It was a soliloquy of triumph normally associated with the gentleman’s pursuit known as “professional wrestling,” which led some to wring hands over the matter on media sociale. One of those was Tigers ace Justin Verlander, who, understandably enough, viewed Sherman’s growled harrumphing through the handsome prism of this, our baseball.

Mr. Verlander’s thoughts:

Justin Verlander     ✔ @JustinVerlander

So Russell is a class act! Sherman on the other hand…. If he played baseball would get a high and tight fastball.

He’s probably right, of course, as baseball has a very specific and occasionally inscrutable code of decorum when it comes to triumphalism in all its forms.

Of course, given the video evidence available in that EOF link above, I have zero doubts that Mr. Sherman would be charging the mound upon receiving and giving due consideration to said purpose pitch. On the third hand, a manager would quite possibly be most displeased with the hurler who plunked a batter lugging around the sub-.100 OBP that constitutes the best that a football player could muster against MLB pitching.

  Beats: 2 minute warning, challenge, injury time out, time out
