Funny how one night after Carlos Gomez goes into "Falling Down" mode after hitting a home run off Paul Maholm, David Wright gets beaned in the head by an errant changeup by Johnny Hellweg. This of course would give Wright full rights to salsa around the basis the next time he hits a home run off Johnny Hellweg. And if you know me at all, you would think that I would have been all over the position of beaning any Brewer that moved.
And yet, I felt what you humans call compassion. Compassion for Hellweg, who was obviously out of sorts after hitting Wright, as he hit Lucas Duda on the next pitch with a slider, and was obviously all over the place. Hellweg threw 37 strikes out of 80 pitches. It was probably the precaution that forced Terry Collins to pull Wright out of the game. TC didn't want Wright to get hit again by this guy.
Luckily, Wright is okay. And the Mets now only need to worry about their player evaluations, which should be full of puppies and sunshine...

When the game is on the line and there has been a lot of back and forth all night long it is understandable if there is a little trash talk. Certain actions leading up to that point could build upon each other until finally someone pops and just lets loose.
However, when the game has just started, and its only the first inning? Yeah, that's just stupid.
In the first...
Thou shalt not pimp home runs.
I think that’s what the rule concerning home-run hitting etiquette in baseball would look like if it were an actual rule. In baseball, players hate getting shown up; too much celebrating after doing something awesome is frowned upon in the game’s culture and so we have incidents like the one that took place on Wednesday night between the Atlanta...
