This whole damn series so far it’s been the Padres MO to pitch the Colorado Rockies inside. You either do that well or you have to go to a different strategy and it’s really only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. Both teams start pitching each other inside and sure enough, you’re going to end up with injured players.
Padres, in this case, end up looking like idiots. Pitching another batter so inside that you completely miss the target and the ball lands behind the batter. That’s crazy.
Another thing. If you a batter comes at you. It’s time to man-up. You don’t throw your glove at him. In the history of baseball brawls, how many times has throwing the glove been effective? 0%. Hell if it was me, I would catch the glove and throw it back at him and then pound him into oblivion.
Also, what’s up with Mark McGuire being involved in so many of these brawls?!?!
Then in Padres fashion, they go on to lose the game. *sigh*
