So Hamels does employ the "low and down Broadway" strategy? :D

Low and down the middle is as good a spot as any for his change-up...starts down the middle belt high and dies off...devastating pitch...one of the few contenders Johan has in the changeup category.

I think it's pretty bush league. If I do that on any ball I hit, I'm expecting the next pitch in my ear, and I can't really cry about it.

What a bunch of ridiculous crap. I have no problem whatsoever with LoDuca flipping his bat after hitting the third of back-to-back-to-back homers to take the lead. If a pitcher gives up three homeruns in a row at any point in a game, he shouldn't be talking to the media about anything other than what he needs to do to make sure that never happens again.

That being said, however, I also have no problem with Hamels going upside LoDuca's head the next time the face eachother. If you are going to watch your homers and flip bats, then you should exptect to get nailed the next time you face that pitcher.

The only thing I do have a problem with in this situation is Hamels talking about what he will do next time to a reporter, then the media acting like it's somehow newsworthy that players get upset when someone breaks one of the stupid unwritten rules of baseball.

That's how I feel. Taking it to the media is useless. Getting payback is fine although there isn't much that warrants a fastball to the head. You can send a message without risking serious injury.

I don't understand what Hamels is crying about. Torii Hunter flips his bat even when he doesn't get a hit. Hamels is just pissed because LoDuca sucks and he gave up a homer to him.
