Rosenthal just tweeted that the Mets have no reason to worry for Cespedes's safety. Hopefully that is true.
This right here (and really, everything everyone has said so far, FUCK baseball is stupid). A 7 run lead late is very safe, but it's not insurmountable. I would imagine there's a 7+ run comeback in the 7th or later every season. Really you should be allowed to go all out in any situation, but if the score is 27-3 then maybe I'd have more understanding. A guy swings on a 3-0 count with a 7 run lead, and this is such an egregious offense that it warrants throwing behind the next batter? Fuck off. Remember that 30-3 game between Texas and I think Baltimore? I don't remember Baltimore throwing at batters every time the Rangers scored.Obviously it's a dumb complaint no matter the score, but 10-3 isn't even that big of a blowout.
