AJ got hit intentionally twice. Retalitation and protection of his own teammates was in order. He didn't do it. He went against his managers orders. He should be sent down if he can't follow instructions and won't stick up for his teammates.
I'm not a White Sox fan, but Ozzie is all about defending his own players and if you're told to hit somebody (see RJ last night) then you do it.
If you're not going to:
A: Do what your manager tells you to do
B: Defend your own teammates
then you don't deserve to be in the majors.
