Nate McLouth shows why you leave the batter's box at a dead run. You never know when the pitcher is going to loaf on his way to cover, or a fielder might bobble a ball.

I advocate throwing at a batter when the alternative is what just happened.

Seems a bit bloodthirsty to me. I point out that you advocated throwing at his head, which is way over the line. If that was just hyperbole, I retract the previous post. If you meant it, though, the question stands.

Another fantastic play by Marte. He's quite an athlete.

Throwing at his head? No way.

Throwing at him? I guess it's a little cowardly, but alright. If he did something to show up the Pirates after his home run, definitely throw at him, but not at the head.

As it stands, I'd definitely be behind a brush back pitch where if it hits him, it hits him, but I don't like throwing at a guy because he's hitting home runs. It's part of the game, the battle.

The board has that feature and numerous people - me included - use it for a certain individual whose only apparent purpose on this site is to be a complete and total ass.

To implement the ignore feature, click the "user control panel" link on the upper right of the home page.

The left side of that page is titled "Options." Under that caption are a number of features, including one titled "friends and foes."

Click on that link. It will then have two choices - "manage friends" and "manage foes." For your purposes, click on "manage foes."

In the box entitled "Your foes," put in the name "Sisyphus." His posts then simply disappear. It is a beautiful feature.

When you look at Soriano's stance, you've got to figure that the only way to go after him is to pitch him inside, but his bat is so fast that you can't sneak anything past him when he's in a groove, like he is now. I don't have any problem with throwing fastballs at his left elbow, which may be in the strike zone anyway, but I'd rather give up the tying run than fracture his skull. Call me a wuss, I guess.

And the cowardly liar roars again.

Yes, Tarheel, feel free to put me on ignore if it makes you happier, but do me the courtesy of refraining from sniping at me from behind your wall like a coward.

Count me as someone who is not a fan of the ignore feature. There hasn't been any real baiters here who just insult people. We disagree about baseball, it happens. But I feel like there is usually a fair amount of respect on this board. By ignoring people you run the risk of really missing something interesting and insightful that they post? And how hard is it to just skip the rest of the post if it is something that bothers you?

Why is Capps throwing anything near the plate to Soriano on an 0-2 count? The guy will swing at anything when he is behind 0-2. Bad, bad pitch at that point.

My feelings exactly.


Great win by the Bucs!

(1) Not much of a risk, really.

(2) The ignore feature performs very well. The feature simply removes posts by the ignored person. The rest of the thread reads the same.

Thanks for a great game thread...I spent the day driving from Pittsburgh to Toronto, and it was nice to get online and read what happened, along with the box score. And with all the fighting, I really felt like I was in the bleachers at Wrigley. In fact, I poured a beer on my own head just for effect.

Sure was a fun game to watch. Real team effort. That is why we all stay fans.

BTW Iowa State you are 100% correct about McClutch.
Now, how long before someone starts the 'he's using HGH' bullsh.. ?
