Listening to the Fan the other day and Carton wanted Donaldson hit every time up in this series. I wanted to call and ask him whether he wanted to choose Judge or Torres to get hit by the Twins. because no big league team is going to sit there and watch you hit one of their guys over and over again. It doesn't work that way.

You'd think with all of the bad PR over the last day or two that Cole might want to lay low and not insert himself into the headlines any further. If he really needs to settle a score with Donaldson there will be other opportunities down the line. Tonight doesn't seem like a good idea.

Easy to talk tough when you punch keyboard keys for a living.

I doubt he’d be so brave if he was faced with the prospect of an enraged “6’1 210 big boy” sprinting at him, followed by a bunch of others looking to harm him and thus put his career and money at risk.

yup, and he took the mature route by fanning Donaldson twice. Still got the best of him

it did for 10+ years.

your redsux hit Jeter 50x a year.

Yanks throw inside to papi 1x and New England threatens to not send any lobsters and fish to NYC, while camping out at Selig's office demanding something be done.

Great. Another nonsense post. First, Jeter didn't get hit 50 times a year. Second, no one complained about papi getting hit. Other than that, spot on post. But to answer your hidden question, a real team stands up for their teammate.

how the hell could they leave that guy out there for 11 hits, 8 runs and 4 dongs?
Maybe by that point they didn't want to waste relievers? Sure, they could have used their long reliever since they usually don't get as much work as the short relievers do.

No doubt they wanted to get a few more outs from the guy, but everything he was throwing was being blasted, including most of the outs.
