I don't think Garcia made the decision to throw at Young, but I do think Ozzie "old school" wanted the message sent. As we saw this year, when Ozzie wants someone hit, you either throw at the batter or you get chewed out. This is why I believe Madden was so pissed after the game. He knows Ozzie.
To me it was a message pitch-no head hunting, but a message. The irony is that the Rays appeared to come together after the pitch, clawing back to score 9 runs but coming up short.
"The pitch" may have been exactly what the team needed to accept Delmon on the team.
The Rays played well again last night but fell just short. As with most young (no pun intended) teams, mistakes will cost them some games (last night), but the addition of Delmon in the lineup seems to have provided an offensive boost that makes that lineup ever more dangerous. When the Rays get some pitching, man, they are going to be dangerous.
