… but when you hit one of ours, we will hit one of yours. The Dodgers need to develop a reputation of a team you don’t mess with.
When Adrian Gonzalez got hit after Hanley homered in the third inning, A-Gon should have charged the mound. My policy is that if you hit me, even if it’s not on purpose, I am coming for you, so that maybe the next time it won’t be so much inside. You also have to drill one of theirs, but it doesn’t have to be right away. Greinke should have drilled their first baseman – Albert What’s His Name before he was ready to come out of the game. Someone has to hit somebody. That was a message pitch to Adrian after the HR. Mike Scioscia plays that game.
Don Mattingly doesn’t manage that way and I think it’s wrong. That’s why Hanley was lost for the NLCS. Send a message to everyone: You hit ours, we hit yours! Don’t take that crap.
Yasiel Puig understands what to do!
I’m headed the Myrtle Beach, SC today for a week. I’ll probably post… or not. This is family vacation on Spring Break!
Here’s me next week:
