Gimme a break

Milwaukee Brewers’ Prince Fielder storms the Dodgers’ clubhouse? Gimme a break. Because he was hit by a pitch in retaliation?  I’ll remind readers of a quote by Tyrus Raymond Cobb:



Baseball is a red-blooded sport for red-blooded men. It's no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out. It's a struggle for supremacy, a survival of the fittest.

Baseball is a man’s sport. The fact is if you’re going to stand over the inside of the plate, you better be ready to take a few for the team… and when you do, you handle it on the field and leave it on the field. These guys playing today are pansies…
