Gausman Will Earn My Respect If He Sends A Marlins Batter To The DL Tonight After What Urena Pulled.

Sounds like no one cares about Acuna getting hit ON PURPOSE!!! But if you retaliate, you’re a psychopath and should be put in jail. Are you serious? 

 

Lots of us care we just think that the league should be doing the punishing not Gausman.

How long has you guys been watching baseball? Baseball has been policed on the field as long as I can remember. Now all of a sudden it’s a problem? 

Let someone “purposely” put Mike Trout on the DL just because he’s hot. See what happens the next time the Angels play that team.

I've considered it a problem for some time, probably since I turned 14 or so.

This is precisely such a big deal because it was Acuna and no one wants to see a young star injured. With that said, you need to let the comissioner's office handle the punishment. You do not hurl a hard ball at great velocity with intent to hit a man who had nothing to do with the situation. These pitchers are human and they miss their spots, you could end up shattering the batter's wrist and ending his career or hitting him in the head and killing him all because of some macho meatball nonsense that he never had anything to do with.

I would like the game to be ended right there and the Angels win by forfeit.

I have always had the utmost respect for Sandy Koufax and Walter Johnson, who never intentionally threw at a batter under any circumstances (actually, Johnson admitted to throwing at a batter ONE TIME in his entire career. He threw at "Home Run" Baker, because Baker intentionally spiked his teammate. It was the first, and last time that Johnson ever intentionally threw at a batter.

Ironically, Johnson hit more batters than any pitcher in the history of the game because opposing batters knew this about him, and would always significantly crowd the plate. 

Johnson was actually afraid that he would maim or even kill a batter if he hit him. One time, Eddie Collins got hit in the back with one of Johnson's pitches, and was writhing in pain at the home plate. Johnson was horrified, as he immediately sprinted to Collins' side to see if he was OK. Collins eventually got up very slowly, and groggily limped down to first base. On the very next pitch, Collins took off sprinting for second base, stealing it easily on the unnerved and very shaken Johnson. The little bugger (Collins) was faking the entire time, and miraculously recovered in less than a minute to steal a base.

 

Also, the entire John Roseboro-Juan Marichal bat-clubbing over the head incident was precipitated because Koufax refused to throw at Marichal, who had brushed back two Dodger batters earlier in the game. Roseboro subsequently threw several balls right next to Marichal's head when he was tossing the ball back to Koufax on the mound after Koufax' pitches (causing tempers to flare), and the rest is history.

 

I know that my feeling on this matter is unpopular, but I believe that Koufax and Johnson played the game in the most appropriate manner, in never throwing at an opposing batter under any circumstances.

No. After the Braves respond, it would be over. Any analyst would say the exact same thing.

Buster Onley had a good take on this. “Would it be OK if a hitter charged the mound if the pitcher was pitching a no-hitter?” 

I’d love to see that happen.   That would be hilarious.  

I am not in favor of retaliation.

And what do you think would happen if someone did that? Be honest.

The player would be suspended and it would probably be a much longer suspension than has typically been the case when a player charges the mound with real provocation.

Why would it be any longer than the normal suspension? Ureña deliberately threw at Acuna just because he was hot and got a 6 game suspension.

    • Being the number one destination by a long shot in an area with top 5 amateur talent still matters. Being in an attractive major urban area still matters. Having top notch facilities and fan base still matters. Leaving the ACC hurt the programs standing.  But there's a reason the school has had such sustained stretches of success in the past.  Even under Turgeon the team was generally a top 25ish team. If you get fired for being generally top 25ish, that's because people have higher expectations for the program.  And they should.  Because the school has all the advantages to be a top 20 team annually.   Now, that's not saying this hire will end up well for MD.  They could conceivably get worse.  But that won't be because of the program's potential.
    • I think you're looking at it the wrong way by placing too much emphasis on the current state of the program.  I of course don't think thry are currently a top-25 program.  But Maryland was able to lure away P5 coaches from schools that are on your list for their last 2 coaching hires, including during a time when they were facing NCAA sanctions.  On top of that, they were really close to luring away a coach (Sean Miller) from a program that I had listed as better than us.  That's fact, not theory.  I don't believe for a second that Turgeon's tenure here dropped the desirability of this job down to where we aren't still close to that level, nor do I think that the other schools closed the gap so significantly that we are worse than all of them.   Let's look at it another way.  If Iowa lost its coach and were looking for a coach this offseason, would they beat us out in terms of hires?  Would TAMU?   Would Alabama?  Would USC?  With Iowa and TAMU I feel very strongly thay they wouldn't. Especially since we already poached one coach from TAMU.  Alabama?  Maybe depending on how much a coach values environment over Benjamin's.  USC?  Only for someone who wants to be in LA.  FSU?  Absolutely not.  Auburn?  similar to Alabama IMO but maybe more tilted in favor of Auburn.  Arkansas?  Debatable as well.   Regardless there are enough schools on this list where I think Maryland comes out clearly ahead in this exercise that I feel comfortable putting this HC position as a top-25 job.
    • Well, Westry is out.  Smith hurt his ankle And Young was sick.  It could mean they just want more depth and that none of them are out. The McCrary thing is interesting.  Wonder if they give him carries tomorrow?
    • 2022 MLB Draft - Top 200 Prospects — Prospects Live   I posted this a month ago.  Check out his swing at No. 7.    
    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
    • Oh man, there should definitely be a Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  That would be amazing!
    • This. I was always a MD Basketball fan first football fan second even though I like football more. Mostly because I grew up with Len Bias during the glory years of Lefty and then Gary Williams cam in and let them very relevent winning it all with an underdog squad. I could not be happier that Turgeon is gone as I've been off his bandwagon for a long time. He's an awful in game coach and his offense is stale, boring and basically resides around throwing up threes or letting his star be stars. Losing Wiggens and Morsell should have told Evans he needed to finally push him out the door, but now we have another lost year.  They need a splashy signing that will invigorate the recruiting and the program. I'll be honest, I tried watching a game or two but found myself disinterested and worse, I really cared less about the VT game where they just looked awful down the stretch. All I kept thinking to myself is more boring Turgeon ball. Either way, I wish there was some way to go back to the ACC but I doubt that will ever happen. MD football will always be irrelevant in the Big-10 because they will never be able to compete with Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State because they have huge packed stadiums every year and compete in major bowls while the Terps end up in Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  And yes, I had to look up a brand of douche! MD basketball should be good because of the local talent and facilities, but as was mentioned already, the college sports scene has changed with social media, one and done possibilities and the transfer pool. And that's doesn't even take into consideration the "likeness pay" is going to have. Both programs need big time coaches to ever have a chance but sadly, Evans is not concerned with making money rather than having success in the field/court.
