Rumble in the Bronx
In baseball, there are certain unwritten rules when it comes to beaning players. If you intentionally hit somebody from the other team, then you can fully expect them to hit you back.
So that’s why I was so surprised Jorge Posada threw a complete hissy fit after Jesse Carlson buzzed him with a fastball. It was merely a move of retaliation, but Posada had to blow it way of of proportion and take it personally.
It was a dick move to say the least.
If you get pushed enough times, eventually you are going to push back and Carlson was merely standing up for his teammates. Unfortunately, it looks like he got the worst of the fight and was sent home with a souvenir goose egg.
Come to think of it, wouldn’t that make a great Blue Jays giveaway? A Jesse Carlson goose egg bobblehead day!
So now we can add Jorge Posada to the long list of Yankees players on the Blue Jays hit list which includes Alex Rodriguez, Josh Towers, A.J. Burnett and Eric Hinske among others.
I hope Posada gets suspended for at least five games because behaviour like that was totally bush league. Grow the fuck up, Posada.
