As should using a baseball as a weapon.

I agree, but a couple of things. It has been, for better or worse (worse), a part of the game since before either of us were alive. MLB doesn't seem interested in changing that. Also, a beanball is thrown from 60 feet away. That helmet throw was from roughly 10. It seems to me that there's a difference there. I mean, you've already made the decision to physically confront the pitcher, and attempt to fight him. Now, you're bringing a weapon into that fight. I don't know, it just strikes me as particularly heinous.

Incidentally, Strickland is pitching right now. It makes me a little sick to see him out there. He's pitching terribly, which I have mixed feelings about.

I get the weaponization to an extent, but a 98 mph fastball that hits him in the head might end a career. I don't think a helmet at ten feet could be thrown hard enough to do the same.

That's true. And it was not nearly as much of a problem before, when almost everybody was throwing slower.

Good game between the Angels and Yankees last night. I couldn't quite make it to the end. West Coast games kill me.

Judge still looking like Judge and Didi is still hitting well.
