If i got hit, i would have yelled at Jimenez too.
What's worse, getting drilled, which could cause serious injury, or answering back you chicken?
Tulo didn't charge the mound.
Jimenez came running clear up to Tulo.
Jimenez was not only wrong in hitting him, but running in after him.
What do you do if someone starts yelling at you, calling you names, and acts like he wants to beat the sh.t out of you, before you have a chance to say anything?
Im sure no player sais sorry. These are millionaire players with huge egos, so at that point it was past way beyond the point when anyone can say sorry.
Tulo called him a chicken, big deal.
It's not like he ragged on Jimenez mom or anything.
Jimenez could have just stayed on the mound, but he threw his glove down, pumped his chest, and ran towards the plate.
It's possible Jimenez didn't hear what Tulowitzky said. Just saw Tulo dropping the bat, yelling something and stood there like challenging Jimenez.
Metacomminication is what humans understand the best.
Just watch the video. That body language tells:
You want a piece of me you (profanity in spanish in Ubaldo's brain), here I am.
And Im not as mad, as latinos are, so my interpretation is probably less insulting.
