    you do realize that the Cubs then hit two Red Sox (one for the Byrd HBP and one for Fukudome) throughout the next two games, right?

    Hope the intent is not to celebrate a HBP that caused fractures to the face/head? Not cool...love baseball and not a fan of either team but that is not good!

    I know. The Cubs manager was acting like a little girl about it. It isn't like the guy hit Byrd intentionally. Then Kerry Wood plunks another Red Sox player the next night. I guess when you are a last place team like the Cubs... "the code" is all you have left.

    Judging just from the look on the pitchers face, he didn't mean to hit him in the head.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I'm not celebrating this HBP as it was a comlplete accident and not something you ever want to see, but for the of sake argument Marlon Byrd also got beaned 2x in the first game of the series.

    That guy leans into the plate just like Youkilis and is just going to get hit...hopefully not in the head again.

    Just a little sarcasm is all. Cubs fans and their manager were acting like there was some kind of malicious intent towards Byrd. Thus the sarcasm in the thread title. Didn't figure was necessary.

    That wasn't the pitcher's reaction. That was Youkilis the 3rd baseman.

    Didn't look like he was over the plate when he got hit. I think the pitch just got away.

    The guy has multiple facial fractures. What a classless post.

    True, but pitchers (at least the Red Sox in this series) were pitching him up and in to brush him back or jam him up. That's where the pitch was supposed to be, just not that far up and in.

    You missed the sarcasm obviously. Now if it was A-Rod that took one on the chin... the thread title would have been 100% serious. (Just to be safe.... wouldn't want you to miss the sarcasm again.)

    Even if you were being sarcastic, what is your point?
