Mark Teixeira

By C. Trent Rosecrans
 

While there was plenty of talk about batters being plunked during the recently completed Yankees-Red Sox series, there wasn't much done about it besides talking to reporters.

Well, with the Red Sox safely out of town, the Yankees got bent out of shape when Fausto Carmona hit Mark Teixeira in the second inning and the benches cleared. Sure, it wasn't much more than a basic baseball millabout, but it could be worth watching in the next couple of days.

On the first pitch after Curtis Granderson launched a homer to make it 4-0 Yankees, Carmona hit Teixeira between the shoulder blades. Teixeira got up yelling at Carmona, and manager Joe Girardi joined him.

Girardi and Indians manager Manny Acta also had a prolonged discussion about the day's events.

Carmona has now hit seven batters this season, and Teixeira has been hit seven times this season, including Tuesday against the Red Sox when he had to leave the game.

Carmona struck out Teixeira in the fourth in their next meeting.

 I know the Franconaa way i to juice his guys up and throw at the head, but at least ssome fans like the classy game, and not the Milton Bradley/David Ortiz/Bryce Harper brand of baseball.




Why would the Sox pitchers even bother throwing at their heads? Boston's 8-1 record against the Yanks says it's just as effective thowing at their bats...


p.s. Nice command of the English language by the way...maybe you should "juice up" with a hooked on phonics tape or 6.


p.s.s. That's Mr. David Ortiz to you pal. I'm sure he's sorry about all the dents he put in your park this week...not.

Get rid of DH and let the pitchers doing the beanings bat.......and that will solve it.

You're lumping Bryce Harper, an 18-year-old kid in A ball, in with Milton Bradley?
My goodness, way to demonstrate a complete lack of baseball knowledge and perspective.

The Yankees get hit more than any other team in baseball by far.  As the commissioner won't do anything about it, the Yankees need to bean the first batter of the opposition in the ear in every game, so as to get the warning out immediately just to protect their guys, especially against the Red Sox as they throw at more people than any other team.  I know the Franconaa way i to juice his guys up and throw at the head, but at least ssome fans like the classy game, and not the Milton Bradley/David Ortiz/Bryce Harper brand of baseball.

Fausto Carmona? LOL!

He couldn't hit a batter on purpose if he tried.

It's really hard to see the Bankees as victims, as much as Teixeira tried to with that pained, I'm about to cry look on his face tonight. And Yankees classy? That's a joke. They've had more cheaters, roid-heads, and character problems than any team in the league in recent times.

Come on.  I mean you can say the Yankees buy their players, you can say their overpaid, you can say the fans are pains, and you can even call A-Rod A-roid, but the Yankees most certainly don't suck.  40 appearances in the World Series with 27 titles.  I'm not sure who your team is, but I would bet that they couldn't carry the Staten Island Yankees (your obviously not that bright so the Staten Island Yankees are a single A team) 3rd string catchers jock.  Have some pride. Be creative.  Stankees suck, how weak.  Your probably a Royals or Astros fan that wished they had owners that wanted to win instead of lining their pockets with money.  Or a Rangers fan who is proud that they made it to the World Series, got crushed, and then filed bankruptcy.  Or maybe your team is the Pirates.  Ya, you sound like a bitter Pirates fan.  No wait, Cubs, it's gotta be the Cubbies. How many titles do they have in the last say 100 years.  More people in this country have seen Congressmen Weiner's weiner then have seen the Cubs win the series.  See how easy it is to talk smack. So lessen learned, next time do your research and think before you post, maybe then you won't embarrass yourself so much.  Yankees suck, really, you better then that.

Just good old fashioned baseball, with the teams only needing an excuse to get in some extra licks, with or without a bat.
