Throwing retaliatory pitches is not unlike Fight Club in that one simply does not speak of such grim affairs. But Giants ace Matt Cain, who will start Game 3 of the NLCS in St. Louis, didn't exactly dismiss the possibility of buzzing Matt Holliday in response to his very questionable takeout slide against Marco Scutaro. Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area tweets ...
Cain said he won't be timid about throwing inside to Holliday, but only as part of plan to get him out. "If one gets away, one gets away."— Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) October 16, 2012
Maybe Cain means it, or maybe he just wants to put the hint of a threat in Holliday's mind. After all, at a certain level everything is psych-ops. We'll know soon enough.
