Aahhh…the joy of baseball. Hitting batters unintentionally…hitting them in retaliation…hitting batters intentionally…charging the mound…bench clearing brawls..ejections…you’ve gotta love it.
If I’m a Devil Ray, I know my season won’t be all that exciting so why not mess with the World Champs…at least the fans will have something to talk about.
I’m not gonna lie about it, Sunday’s game made me feel good. I liked seeing Big Papi get all riled up to charge the mound.
I liked Trot Nixon angry in the dugout…it made my day, like "Yea, go ahead and mess with the champs, do it, come on."
Of course, the icing on the cake, Jay Payton’s grand slam after replacing Trot who was ejected…take that you young little Devil Rays!
Add on a couple long bombs from Manny and Papi and you’ve got yourself a ballgame…well, in Sunday’s case, something like that 🙂
