Of course, they were also talkig about this on Baseball Tonight last night. There and here, I couldn't help but wonder why anyone doesn't point out that this is Sports Talk Radio we're talking about here. Talking shyte is the whole format practically!! I don't think anyone should get too worked up or be surprised when someone goes over the top with crap on a dumb talk radio show, that's what they're there for.

Interesting you mention that. It's actually common knowledge in the radio biz that negative emotions lead to better ratings, hence the vitriol of political talk radio. I'd never thought of that before in terms of sports broadcasting, but it wouldn't surprise me if producers at YES or ESPN think the same way, in some cases at least.

Wow, a lot of Yankee fans don't like Schilling. Imagine that. :-b

And Kazmir has hit four batters. Want to guess who those four are? (Hint: they are all Red Sox.)
I'm back. Sorta.

Wanna make a guess how many TB players have been hit by Red Sox pitchers? Hint, it's more than Red Sox players have been hit by TB pitchers. It started long before Pinella or the Gutless Wonder were with their respective teams, when Pedro hit Gerald Williams.

You're missing the point. The point is that Pinella's contention that he has young pitchers with control issues is simply not true.

I never argued the Sox don't hit batters, and do it on purpose. From what I understand, many Yankee fans are mad that their team doesn't retaliate. I'm glad my team does.

I went to a D-Rays game at Tropicana vs. the Sox last year. I bought tickets at the gate and I ended up getting 1st base line like 3 rows up, unbelievable seats for the amount of people that were there. The majority of the people were definitely Sox fans though, the place was loaded with them.

You have no real point to miss. You just don't like the Yankees or their fans. Your post was clearly siding with Schilling on this. Pinella does not need to tell his team anything. Every pitcher in the game, young or old, knows when you are supposed to drill someone. It's not like Schilling has never done the same. You don't like Pinella because of his past association with the Yankees.

I usually don't agree with what you say at all, but I'm one of the Yankee fans that are pissed the Yankees don't retaliate. It's friggin' sad that Torre, Mussina, and alot of other guys are soft L's. The only real badasses we have are Randy, who Torre probably wouldn't let hit someone, Sturtze who's on the DL right now, and Brown who probably couldn't even hit a batter if he tried.
