Even if he didn't intentionally hit Votto, there was the appearance that he may have done it on purpose. In that case, the Reds' pitching staff has to lay down the law that throwing at Votto (or any of the other front-line offensive players) will not be tolerated. Deputy Sam took care of it in exactly the right way--he retaliated immediately, and with a purpose pitch that was nonlethal. You can bet that the other players in the Reds clubhouse appreciate what he did, and know that LeCure has their back if things get hairy out there.
Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.
