    It's always hilarious when they deny it... You mean you make millions to put the ball in spots you choose, you're excellent at it, and you just so happened to miss by three feet?

    On the first pitch, so it's not like he was tired. I could see that as a possibility in the later innings.

    Right. If you've got the stones to plug him on the first pitch, have the stones to own it.

    They need to suspend all the players that come in from the dugout and bullpen as well, like other sports do.

    6 games, so one start, wooo.

    If your going to suspend them, suspend them. 60 games. Make it hurt next season too.


    That will stop it.

    Wonder how long it took Urena to remember that NL pitchers bat?

    He should have gotten at least 10 games for that.

    Probably why he was doing his best to convince everyone it was an accident.

    Intentionally hitting a guy for any reason is such coward move. I hate it and in any situation and wish they would make it a min 81 game suspension for the first offense and 1 year for the second. I would have loved to see Acuna charge the mound with the bat and laid it across Urena's pitching elbow.

    Ultimately, does hitting a guy help you win games or lose games? I can see arguments on both sides.

    Quite true in this case.
