I'm still trying to figure out how Price gets to stay in the game after a warning and hitting 2 guys and Workman only comes close to hitting a batter and gets tossed.....
As always - 100% correct!
workman aimed for the head. his intent was to hurt. ortiz got a love tap on his bottom.
A 94 mph pitch aimed at Ortiz is intent to hit and hurt. Bellini should have ejected Price on the spot. But not only does he get to stay in he also hits Carp on a pitch about 6 inches lower than Workman's AND gets to throw way up and in on Holt. It's hard to say if Price had intent on the Carp pitch, but he had great control all night and did exactly what he wanted. Given the situation he should have been ejected on any of those pitches. Garbage calls, Bellini is a joke.
Price and Madden are once again in the middle of a bad situation going down hill fast.
Workman was an automatic ejection, no doubt about. But the umps let Price get two shots in, for free.
They should've tossed him when he hit Papi. He couldn't have been more obvious about it.
But at least I could see the umps not wanting to toss a star pitcher in the 1st unless they were 100% certain.
But they give him a warning, and he still drills Carp, and the umps told him it was okay? He drills two guys after they knew there was bad blood from earlier this year, and last year's playoffs, and they do nothing?
good points. The Carp call was questionable though. Not sure there was intent but not saying there wasn't. At that point the umps really had no choice and it was obvious Workman had intent. He had nothing to lose so why not?? All in all, good game.
