You know damn well that these prissy, hyper-sensitive hitters would throw a **** fit if pitchers started showing them up every time they struck them out. It works both ways.
Start plunking a few of these guys after they pose at home plate and you'll see things change. Of course that won't happen because pitchers seemingly aren't even allowed to pitch inside to hitters without the umpires issuing warnings.
