There is a time for it (Josh Beckett was somebody that needed reminding once in a while which required a message to team mates since he was a pitcher...but he was a bad headhunter and asshole). He threw at Bobby Abreu's head on purpose because of something dumb from years before. The Sox fan I was sitting next to was like, "Yea, Josh! Rip his head off! That Aidenhart kid deserved to die!" It was like a month after. I don't remember what I said to that old man, but he got up and left.
I agree though. It's just childish. The Marisnick thing...it looks worse but I seriously think he misjudged and wasn't trying to hurt him.
But that stupid unwritten rule stuff makes it drag on and on.
The no bunting for a hit in a no hitter or on closers is lame too. Get on base anyway possible. Chris Perez was pissed at Kendrick when he bunted during a shutout or something. I think Aybar did it to Verlander too. Haha.
Loek van Mil now too. We traded away Fuentes for him. That's 4 Angels in two years. It's pretty crazy. I know Trout's brother-in-law and van Mil were minor leaguers, but it's still crazy. Tommy Hanson, Adenhart, and Ryan Bolden if going back a decade. Seven deaths in one organization in 10 years is starting to look like a curse.

It is absolutely wrong to like the Yankees (or the Red Sox) for any reason and if you find yourself doing so you should probably report for a lobotomy.
