Re: Cardinals discussion thread
I just saw the video. Clearly Yadi was the one who instigated contact. But I don't see any spitting in there. When people yell, sometimes a little spittle flies out. That happens all the time and it appears that's what the ump was reacting to. That's VERY different that what Robbie Alomar did, purposefully gathering and expelling a wad of spit at the guy.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
