I haven't seen any life threatening situations in baseball that were intentional since the days of Ty Cobb (correct me if my facts are wrong there).
When a pitcher throws at somebody's head it could kill them. No not the likeliest thing to happen, but even with the helmet a possibility.

To me the better thing to do rather than dangerous behavior by these millionaires playing a kid's game being is to punish anybody who gets physical with another player. But that won't happen, fans want that crap.

I see your point, but still disagree. With all the safety equipment in place nowadays, it's hard for a batter to get a lifethreatening injury. First and third base coaches are the most susceptible to being injured by a foul ball. Batters used to be trained to turn in to prevent injury. Nowadays it seems like batters turn out toward the ball to get hit intentionally. The injuries are a part of baseball, but can be easily prevented with proper mechanics.

I'm only 33, but maybe that's the old school in me that makes me feel this way.

Here's the problem, if you are the closer, which he is far from with his number of appearances, then act like you've done it. You come in to get a save, you get it. The Brewers are a mediocre team, at best, and all you did was your job, not win a playoff game, not a come from behind win, not striking out the side with the bases loaded, not an amazing snag on a comebacker, his job.

Is he back? I don't even know what 'being back' means when he pitches 10 games out of 30. If he was pitching in every save situation or in every game, then maybe he could be 'back', but he still isn't a regular pitcher.

I still disagree on the overall issue, but I see your point here.

I doubt he'll do it again. It was actually good to see some emotion from him. But, as I said earlier- just keep you bat on your shoulder when you face him and chances are he'll walk you and the rest of the stadium.

From the sounds of it, I wouldn't count on seeing him sommersault again. Sounds like the clubhouse talk to him was pretty stern. At least stern enough that the Brewers were satisfied enough not to throw at anyone the next day.

Here is one thing I still don't understand about baseball, How is that not an error?

By rule, it has to touch their glove to be an error, but when you are camped under it and you just straight miss it, that should always be an error in my book.

Its like an infielder having the ball go between his legs but missing his glove, error.
