    Nope. He gently tossed it aside before throwing some F Bombs at Branson ( which McCarver tried to cover with "He's saying "Bring it on"). Did anyone else notice Varitek trying to lift A-Rod to drop him on his head before the rush of players stepped in.

I seriously doubt the intent was to drop A-Rod "on his head." It was more akin to a wrestling single-leg takedown in order to get A-Rod flat on his that he could start "pummeling his head" before people got there. Totally different.

    The next fight I want to see is Theo Epstein giving Buck and McCarver the what-for. Perhaps the shaky knee drop. The way they were tripping over themselves to fellate A-Rod was absurd. Varitek was some sort of aggressor, but not A-Rod. Now he's a "warrior!" Ridiculous. Take your base. No mention of Nomar being hit the day before, and quietly and professionally taking his base, either.

Yeah, hitters talking shit to pitchers needs to stop...but since it won't, announcers "fellating" hitters who talk shit to pitchers needs to stop. Hitters have been given all kinds of favors over the past 10 years and pitchers have been left out to dry, losing jobs, salary, etc because of it. Hitters shouldn't have any problem with the occassional HBP or "close call" unless it's at the head...especially since so many of them are crowding the plate now and taking away the pitcher's meal ticket, the inside strike.

I mean, I'm a Barry Bonds mark, but even I was rooting for Mark Prior when, in his rookie season, he hit Bonds (with a fucking CURVEBALL) and heard some words from Barry. Prior simply stood on the mound and told Bonds to bring it, doing everything but giving Barry the Rock's little hand-gesture. So now I'm a Mark Prior mark as well.

Sorry for the tangent, but sometimes pitchers need some fellating too.

Did Varitek's mask come off before A-Rod started putting the punches to his head. That would be funny if he broke his hand punching Varitek's mask.

Well, both are better than the old "futuristic" uniforms baseball subjected us to a few years ago, and mysteriously I cannot find any photos online of any of them!
