I’m in total agreement.

I don’t think anybody should ever get thrown at because they’re tearing the cover off the ball.

Jam them inside, fine. Make them uncomfortable, fine. But hitting them on purpose is not cool.

He’s from a different generation of ballplayer. What do you expect? Even though I don’t agree with him, Hernandez’ opinion isn’t outlandish. He’s against throwing at a guy’s head or neck . He just wants them to get dusted. Dontrelle Willis shared the same opinion on MLB Whiparound and he’s a newer generation guy.

It wasn't an attempt to knock him down or back him off, that's just what the PR people told them they're going with 3 hours later so that the suspension isn't as long. This was Urena's fastest pitch of the season.

Keith is my favorite guy to listen call games. The dude is dripping with baseball knowledge especially when it comes to hitting and fielding. Plus what really makes him great is he's funny, quirky, and comes with strong opinions. I wonder if he'll try to walk back his take during tonight's broadcast or maybe on his twitter acct.

He will walk it back some I'd bet. There’s a difference between throwing inside and uncoiling at max velocity with an intent to hit a batter.

I think we need another unwritten rule of baseball. If a pitcher is striking you out multiple times, and even shows a tiny bit of emotion doing so, then it's a-okay to throw your bat or helmet at the pitcher in an attempt to injure him.

We know it wasn't right when Marlins manager Don Mattingly, who typically has some archaic views on game conduct, didn't really have Urena's back in the postgame press conference.

I'm one of the 5 then. And Urena is a punk and so is any management that keeps allowing bush league moves like this.
