    Delmon Young

    Just read on the Baseball Tonight crawl that Delmon Young threw his bat into an umpire's chest after being called out on strikes in Pawtucket. Yikes, must have been a terrible call.

    I saw that on the bottom line. Is the ump injured?

    Hope not, I'd feel bad for making a joke in my post. I assume he had a chest protector of some sort.

    Is it true Delmon's song coming to the plate is the Woody Guthrie classic "Union Train"?

    Those chest protectors usually guard pretty well against foul balls, so I would imagine it would prevent too much more than a bruise for someone throwing a bat and hitting him in the chest.

    But as far as the incident itself, yep that's gonna mean Delmon is sitting out for a large chunk of games. I'm guessing a 25 to 50-game suspension.

    I can hardly wait to see the game report.... Geez!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    The accounts I have heard this morning are consistent with a few articles I read. I found out that Corky Miller was behind the dish. I have a call in to him. I'd love to hear his unedited version. My guess is Delmon will be sitting 20-30 days. It's a real shame but not unexpected.

    Corky should have given him the big boot and the leg drop of death. :
