  • Yes. The highlight of the game. We loved if.

  • I don't know. I do not really know the drama surrounding ARod and I did not see him get hit with the ball last night. The things I know are that sometimes people get hit with baseballs when playing the sport. If it was revenge and purposeful, then I personally don't think it was right. But then again I don't usually condone violence. Tat said, this is the big leagues and he gets paid the big bucks. It's hard to feel sorry for someone that is part of the problem.

  • Didn't see the pitch, but A-Rod is suspected of using performance enhancing drugs & is facing a season-long suspension if found guilty. IMO, no player deserves to purposely be nailed with a pitch that is coming at them at anywhere from 90-100 mph!. That could be a career ending injury, or worse.

  • Being beaned has been a long standing "tradition" in baseball since the game started. There are rules against intentional beaning, but the punishment is meted out according to injury, intent and the person beanballed (all unspoken)

    Beaning is often used a "discipline" or as a way to let players know their behavior isn't appreciated.

    I would have beaned him too

  • Hell yeah, he deserves it for being such a douche. I didn't see that pitch unfortunately. He needs to get more than just beaned by some pitchers.

  • Seattle fans will always hate A-Rod for what he did/said when he left the Mariners. I didn't see the pitch, or the game, so I can't really say, but while remembering his departure from us, I'd say he probably deserved it.

  • The enhancing drugs made him feel no pain... he'll live.

  • I do not like A-Rod.
    I think that anyone who purposely tries to harm another player should be suspended and fined. Depending on the seriousness he should be able to be released from his contract and banned from the game.
