Re: 5/27/2013 Reds v. Indians in the Battle for Ohio
When you try to show up a pitcher don't be surprised when he drills you. It has been that way for a very long time, and actually has lessened recently with so many players on opposing teams being friends with one another. It used to be the way the game was played, and for some still is.
I don't agree with headhunting (if that is what Chapman was indeed doing), yet I knew as soon as Swisher stared down Chapman he was going to get the next one nice and tight. I also knew DeJesus was going to get buzzed by Cueto. It was clear Cueto was tired of his constant delays in the batting box in DeJesus's first at bat.
There are still managers that believe in policing the game within itself, and Dusty is one of them.
