    what if HAMEL decides to be the "welcoming committee" for MIDDLEBROOKS as he did for BRYCE HARPER?

    this one could get ugly very quickly. as you recall, mr. hamel nailed harper right on his tight back and admitted to throwing at him after the game as a throwback way to welcome the kid into the big leagues. he got suspended a start but what if he wants to make a bigger statement. what should the sox retaliation be? these things must be worked out in advance.

    Not sure what the retaliation would look like, but I am fairly certain it would be administered by Josh Beckett.

    Won't happen. Hamels should know he will definitely get banned more than 5 games this time if he plunks Middlebrooks.  Plus, Middlebrooks is righty and if Hamels gets Middlebrooks good, both dugouts will be cleared.

    Please, the Sox starters don't even try and own the inside half of the dish let alone throw a purpose pitch.

    When  Cole Hamels hit Bryce Harper, it was referred to as old-time baseball.  I was just looking up the stats, the top 25 players in the HBP category, I've seen the vast majority: Biggio 295, Baylor 267, Kendall 254, Ron Hunt 243, Frank Robinson 198, Gallarga 178, Giambi 174, Delgado 172, A-Rod 160, Jeter 158, Vina 157, Brady Anderson 154, Guillen 145 and Eckstein and Fisk at 143.  It seems to be a myth that pitchers threw more at batters pre-1960.

    Why would he need to welcome Middlebrooks? The reason he hit Harper was because of his mouth.

    I doubt Cole Hamels would deliberately bean a batter who has struck out in 20 of his 59 plate appearances at the MLB level ... I suspect Hamels would want to add to his strikeout total.

    I think we saw Mr. Doubront throw a "purpose pitch" tonight at one Mr. Luke Scott in retaliation for Moore hitting A-Gon.  He and Shopp were laughing about it on the mound after it happened.

    But, yeah... Beckett would def be the one to exact revenge at a later date had Doubront not.

    If he throws at Middlebrooks, I wouldn't think it unusual if the next batter's bat slipped out of his hands and it flew toward the mound.

    I say we all buy tickets to the game and rush the mound if he does it!

    Who is with me?!?
