However, I'm honestly not sure you can say they were at him until you see him actually get beaned. Yes, they were inside... But not "diving out of the way" inside. I thought the best way the ump could have handled it was issuing the warnings after the FIRST pitch.
I disagree. The second and third pitches were not close to A Rod though they were tailing fastballs. The late movement is exaggerated by the TV angle. The second was not that far from being a strike and Arod didn't even flinch.
