    [QUOTE]I guess I don't get the jock mentality. Hitting someone with a pitch is a way to get their respect? How about striking them out? Wow, that's really being a tough guy, especially for an AL pitcher who doesn't have to bat. Did Manny show disrespect when he "styled" on his HR's? Was he plunked for all the times he didn't "respect" the pitcher? It's all a bunch of immature jock nonsense. The way to get respect is to beat the opponent. Throwing inside is one thing. Beaning batters is nonsense.

    David, 3 points....1...thats baseball....always been that way.....2.....nobody condones beaning...nobody should have their head thrown at and 3....not only did Cervelli show up Lackey....he is a guy who stands on top of plate....so a pitcher has to throw inside on him in any case

    [QUOTE]It was a dumb move and in part because it allowed and insurance run to score.
    Posted by fivekatz[/QUOTE]
     I totally agree. If it had been a blowout, sure go right ahead. But the score was 4-2, it was late in the game and this guy was the leadoff hitter. I might have plunked him but at a less meaningful time when the game wasn't still on the line.

    Normally, I wouldn't have a problem with it, but Lackey has hit 17 men this year, by far the most in the league.  It's embarassing.

    3 points....1...thats baseball....always been that way

    Not everything is exactly the same now as it has been in baseball. What was immature in the past, remains immature now.

    Many sluggers show up the pitchers today with their bat flips and other pimping. In the past, these hitters probably would have been thrown at. What happened to that great baseball tradition?

    he is a guy who stands on top of plate....so a pitcher has to throw inside on him in any case

    That was not a "purpose" pitch to back him off the plate. I have no problem with that. That is, and should be, part of the game.

    with SLACKEY, striking someone out, even a bum like cervelli, is usually not an option.

    Yap, yap, yap.  Guess you must have missed CC drilling Ellsbury on the fourth pitch of the game.  What do you think the weight difference is there?  200 pounds?  Sure looked intentional, but no comment from you on that?

    Cervelli taunted at the plate, whether it was his intention to or not.  Lucky he got it in the back; Nolan Ryan would've drilled him in the head. 

    And for the record, Cervelli never would have made it past Salty.

    Lackey hasn't been able to locate for at least two years, how is everybody so sure that he was even aiming at Cervelli?

    Taunting is in the eye of the beholder.  The Sox lead the AL in hitting other players and Lackey more than anyone else. 

    I don't condone throwing at anyone and never have.  I don't think the 4th pitch by Sabathia was intended to hit Ellsbury.  Why put the leadoff guy on from a team that has already beaten you down this season? 

    Lackey was not protecting his hitters--what he did was all about Lackey, not the team.  If he really wants to help his team, why not try to get guys out instead of put them on base?

    Do you realize during the last 12 yrs of these H2Hs, the RS pitchers have outhit the Yankee pitchers by a factor of about 8/5?

    Yes, Pedro used to ding people but he also used to pitch great games in big moments. I'd like to see Lackey focus more on all the runs he allows then dinging people who get under his skin. 

    I'll praise Lackey when he wins an important postseason game for us. Sound fair?

    [QUOTE]I think Lackey should have hit himself with a pitch.  I mean, if it was in retaliation for being shown up/embarrassed:  what caused more embarrassment? A. Cervelli's little league oh-boy-isn't-this-great dance, or B. Lackey serving up a meatball that even little Cervy could hit into the Boston night?  Obviously, B. is the answer.  So john should have plunked himself in retaliation.
    Posted by SpacemanEephus[/QUOTE]

    :o)  I think John takes it out on himself quite often.  He shares it with others, but I think he still berates himself when he's alone with his worst critic.  And though we have a large number of them on this board, I doubt anyone is as hard on him as the sour face he sees in the mirror or in the papers.

    But ... going 6-0 recently must have helped his self talk a lot.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: LACKEY DID THE RIGHT THING AGAIN BY POPPING CERVELLI, Y NO PRAISE? : i actually will CREDIT lack's action for this win! the sox came out pumped. clearly it was on their mind. did you beck when facing cervelli? u could feel the hate. had lack not responded this could have led to a brawl with beck only lasting about 5 and not able to come inside and incidentally hit guys like tex and almost hit a slew of guys in coming inside over and over which one must do to stop the yanks. basebal justice worked to perfection! did u notice the clap by ells in sarcasm towards cervelli as he crossed the plate? clearly it ticked off the sox and lack got them fired up. no doubt he's viewed favorably by his mates! 
    Posted by COMMUNIST-CONTRARIAN[/QUOTE]
    how different is this from Papi's bat throwing display? did they bean him or was it too late in that game? I think throwing at guys is foolish. some day someone is going to get really hurt because of an unintentional misplaced pitch.

    If you dont want anyone clapping after hitting a HR

    then maybe


    you shouldnt serve up a HR to a weakling like Cervelli 


    On top of that he put him on base and Cervelli SCORES AGAIN, goes back to the dugout and gets more high fives, hugs and smiles.

    Lackey really showed him who was the boss. And please stop talking about the likes of Gibson, Ryan or Pedro

    Those guys could actually pitch. They could had hit 4 batters in one inning and have none of them score. lackey on the other hand looked foolish by getting irate at back up catcher and then having him showed him up again by SCORING AGAIN.
