Re: 4-17 Reds @StL
While I think the warning may have been an overreaction, I don't subscribe to the "he threw a breaking ball" argument as a way to explain he thereby wasn't throwing at a batter. Guys can control a breaking ball enough to hit a batter with it if they're so inclined. And in my estimation, if you want to throw at a guy, sometimes doing it with a breaking ball is the way to go because of the saturation of the excuse that it's "only a breaking ball so he couldn't have been throwing at him."
Any ball at 80+ MPH is gonna sting a bit. Personally, I got the feeling Cueto was throwing at Molina.
Oh, and that was a TERRIBLE call.
