What does it take for a warning to be issued? Does someone have to be permanently injured or disfigured? Don’t get me wrong, I live in Dunedin so I do support the Jays, but I’m seriously reconsidering that after what I’ve seen in the last two games.
Is it because of Harper? The Jays didn’t play like that the first game–which was the day the Phillies signed Harper.
Then during Harper’s debut, the brush-backs started. First, Jean Segura:
Then during Rhys Hoskins’ second at bat, his first after his 2-run homer, he was nearly got nailed in the face:
Today, Harper was nailed in the ankle. See Harper getting hit HERE.
I know that after Hoskins was nearly decapitated no warning was issued…and not today after Harper got hit.
After the game a steaming Hoskins said he Elias ready to back up Harper if he would have charged the mound.
I’ll be at the last matchup VS the Jays next week. Hopefully, there won’t be a repeat of this kind of behavior.
