Seriously, fuck that guy. What a piece of fucking garbage.
It's one thing to come up and in on a guy. It's one thing to plunk the hottest hitter on your arch rival's team. It's a completely different thing to continue to buzz people's towers and hit batters after you start getting shellacked by the bottom of that arch rival's order.
Just completely classless. Shame on the umpire for not tossing Beckett after the Jeter HBP. It was obvious at that point that the Yanks weren't going to retaliate and Beckett was looking for a way out, so just give it to him. And speaking of retaliation, how does Dustin Pedroia not take one in the ear after Cano gets drilled? Fuck taking the high road. As awesome as he was tonight, Hughes should have stepped up and protected his teammates. The ump hadn't issued a warning and the Yanks had their opportunity to even the score and they didn't take it. Hopefully CC takes matters into his own hands tomorrow.
I'm not a religious man by any means. But I am going to be saying my prayers to God, Allah, Yahweh, Shiva, and everybody else tonight that Cano is OK.
Oh by the way, the Yankees won 10-3 tonight and completely dominated the Red Sox in every facet of the game. Yawn!
