    Burton beaned Teixeira in the butt!

    I can only assume it was intentional, but it was interesting.

    Maybe someone can help me out, but I cannot recall the last time a Reds pitcher intentionally beaned someone. I seriously have to think about the days of the "Nasty Boys." The Reds pitchers for this entire decade have been pretty soft.

    Technically, Burton didn't bean him. Beaning somebody implied hitting him in the "bean", i.e., the head.

    Did anyone hear Bobby Cox (I think it was him) cussing at Burton after he hit him?

    Can we be certain that Burton was trying to throw outside though?

    Hit a batter because you throw pitches in the wheelhouse and cannot get anyone out. Makes a lot of sense. On the bright side... at least a hit batter has to stop at first base. A moral victory for Burton.

    It's been going on for 100 years.

    As I said earlier, I honestly am failing to remember the last time a Reds pitcher did it though (outside of the Nasty Boys). Reds pitching has been historically soft for quite some time.

    I agree. So has drug dealing, murder and rape. Doesn't make it right. I don't mind brushing back a hitter. I do mind intentionally hitting them. There is a big difference in intimidating (not what Burton did) and pathetic (what Burton did).

    I disagree. IMO Burton did it the right way. He didn't head hunt, didn't put one in his back, he plucked his butt.

    he didn't injur the guy and he sent a little message. I'm cool with it.

    I prefer pitchers who (1) get outs and (2) are grown ups.

    I like the idea that a pitcher claims the plate and backs the batter off. More Reds pitchers should do that (or have the ability to do that.) But I always thought it was silly when someone takes you deep and you throw at the next guy. It just makes it more obvious that you were pwned, as the kids say.

    Ya,there is a difference between showing a willingness to work the inside of the plate and a willingness to punish a hitter for doing his job.
