Love Those Spunky Tigers

I don’t get it. The media keeps reporting that Youkilis threw Porcello to the ground after Pukeless charged the mound upon being hit by a pitch (August 11th night game). The way I saw it, Porcello threw the Puke down with a nice roundhouse move. Must be that Boston media bias again. Either way, you gotta love how Leyland plays ball the old school way. I would sure like to see some of that spunkiness in the O’s.

Guess you guys weren't watching the MLB Network last night. They were absolutely trashing Youk. Saying that charging the mound was unwarranted and that Youk got thrown to the ground like a sack of potatoes by a 20-yr-old kid. They basically called Youk a whiny, petulant little child.

Also, Keith Law is/was killing him on Twitter:

It's Amateur Night at Fenway, starring Kevin Youkilis! #redsox
That's a disgrace. Porcello should still be in this game. #redsox
Summary of emails from #redsox fans to my mailbag tonight: "Waaaa waaaa waaaa waaaaa"
Youkilis Misses Nap, Throws Binkie at Porcello #fakenews

UPDATE: They just keep coming:

That's how I saw it. Rick Porcello just moved up a few spaces as one of my favorite non-Oriole.

Baseball Tonight called it the right way too.

They said Porcello had the upper hand all the way.

Not sure who's been saying otherwise other than Sox fans.

By the way, I'm loving me some of that Tiger Fire. I'll be collecting Social Security before I see that with the O's.

Youk is such a punk for chasing him down to throw his helmet. That in itself should be a long suspension.

It's not bad enough that the batter has a 60ft running start at the pitcher but then uses their helmet as a weapon. Punk move.

Haha...Youk chucks his helmet at Porcello and Porcello still drops his wiggling ass to the ground. Youkilis is officially a punk now, before he was just annoying...with his horrible goatee and the shaking of his ass before every pitch. I'm not even sure what his beef was, the night before he got hit on his friggin' elbow pad.

puke is nothing but a whiner. Every close call he throws his helmet down and stomps around like a jerk. ..the Terry comes out to cry. I'm not saying you should never complain - but pick your battles. Puke says he's just competive - screw you, control your emotions. Oh and stand IN the batters box.

Yep, does every Sawx and Yankee player have some annoying trait that they exhibit before every pitch?

Papelbon has the "O" face when staring in for the sign.

Jeter does that thing where kicks the dirt and holds his right hand up for time before he gets into the box.

Oh well, maybe they don't all have them...or maybe that's just all I can think of at the moment.:D

5 games each for Youkilis and Porcello

Both are appealing.

I was expecting more for Youkilis, but then again Richie Sexson only got 6 games for actually hitting Kason Gabbard with his helmet and charging the mound on a pitch that was high but two feet outside. So maybe it fits.

The whole thing was dumb. And the umpires should have had a better handle on it given that there was some friction the night before as well.

That's a load of crap. Porcello should not have been suspended for the same amount as Puke. He shouldn't have even been ejected during the game.

Puke should have gotten more games, IMO, b/c he threw his helmet. What a chicken **** move. He's obviously bigger than Porcello and he wants to throw his helmet like a little girl on a kid who's 120 lbs. soaking wet?! Way to be a man, Youkilis. :rolleyes: I guess it really didn't matter anyway, seeing as how Porcello took him down :D :laughlol:

So a hat as a weapon = bad, but a baseball as a weapon = good?

I don't care what happened in the game and I don't care about youk, but, throwing at someone is throwing at someone whether its a hat or a ball.

:cussing: taking your base.
