throw at a red in the first inning to get all the warnings out of the way, that way they dont do something stupid like throw up and in at mccutchen.

believe me, I know the risk associated with this but like I said, it would get the warning out of the way and allow the pirates to step up to the plate knowing they will be playing baseball and not beanball..

Not me. No way do I risk having them score in the first inning and gain momentum. If they want to hit Marte in the back to lead off the bottom of the 1st, have at it. Just don't hurt the man.

A beaning would introduce an element of uncertainty that I would prefer not seeing injected into the game.

In fact, even if we see a couple of Bucs being hit by pitches today, I'd like to see that batter put his head down, run to first and move on. Business-like approach. Hold a long memory for next year if necessary.
