Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers wants everybody to know that he's a tough guy and he won't put up with anything other than an "eye for an eye" mentality, specifically on the mound.
On Tuesday, Towers went on Arizona Sports 620's "Burns and Gambo" radio show and expressed displeasure for his pitchers' lack of grit. He felt his pitchers didn't intentionally throw at enough batters this season. Only he did so much more than that.
In reference to a late-season 8-1 smackdown the Diamondbacks endured that saw some Dodger players enjoying bananas in the dugout, Towers told 620:
I was sitting behind home plate that game and when it showed up on the Diamondvision of stuffing bananas down their throats, I felt like we were a punching bag. Literally, if I would have had a carton of baseballs I would have fired them into the dugout from where I was sitting behind home plate.
For those who aren't familiar with the banana incident. This picture should do the trick.
