After not retaliating over the clear intentional hit on A-Rod.. The Red Sox continued to hit Yankee batters for a total of 4 hit batters over the entire game.. Anyone think this couldn't have been prevented if Yankee pitchers hit someone like Ortiz saying we don't appreciate getting hit on purpose? Yankee batters were hit by pitches 4 times!
Curt Schilling said at the end of the game he was still surprised there was no retaliation by the Yankees..
Man its times like these that makes me miss AJ Burnett..
The other hits were clearly unintentional, almost as clear as the Arod HBP was intentional.
Lose respect? No, in this game there was no time and place to get revenge because we never had a comfortable enough lead to be able to afford to put a runner on base and with both sides warned(stupid) after Arod was beaned, CC didn't want to get ejected early.
We see them again in 2 weeks. Something will be done.
Lots of games left this season. This was a close game and the Yanks could not afford to be giving them free base runners. Dumpster's decision backfired on him and I'm sure the Yankees will not forget this.
I think retaliation and hitting a player intentionally is stupid. First off all, your fans look like complete pricks for cheering when someone gets hit. Second, you put a player on base. Giving a free baserunner is stupid. Thirdly, if you lose, like the Red Sox did tonight, you look really stupid for going all out and then getting your butt handed to you. I'd rather the Yankees take the high road and just crush the Red Sox instead of throwing a ball at a player.
