You know how it goes.
The next time the Dodgers play the Cardinals Don Mattingly has one objective. It doesn't matter if it's the playoffs, spring training, next season... hell it could be a weekend softball tournament.
Take these f---- red birds down. Not the way Holliday was politely plunked on the thigh, where it's all fat and muscle. No. These guys need to be dropped cowhide to bone until they're carried off the field.
Line up Jose Dominguez, Brian Wilson, and Paco Rodriguez and start the firing squad.
Let's review the list of offenses:
- It start last year in the playoffs when Hanley Ramirez was incapacitated by a shot straight to the ribs
Fast forward to this season
Just in this series:
- Puig was drilled on the hand
- Hanley was hit... TWICE in one game, including the hand/forearm
- And for good measure they threw at Hanley's head
If MLB wants to see the Dodgers involved in rivalries they don't need to manufacture a BS one with Arizona. As if the Dbags could ever matter to the Dodgers. No, we've got a real blood-sport lining up with the "greatest and most insufferable fans in the world."
Throw in the fact that Matheny blatantly blew the ASG starter by picking his pitcher over the obvious choice, Kershaw, and I'm ready to declare that at least for this season I'd rather see the Cardinals suffer than the hated ones in SF.
Who's with me?!
