At the risk of sounding like a crybaby Sox fan who wants equality for my team in a two team city, what is all the babying of Sosa after he was hit twice?

Frank has been hit 6 times so far. Where is the media sympathy?

Sosa got beaned in the head? So? He is fine! He had a helmet! Did his wife have a helmet on when she got hit with the rum bottle?

Man, I feel better!

I am disappointed he doesn't get beaned more often, given his little hop and the blown kisses and the chest tapping. I don't want anyone to get hurt, but I would like players who behave that way to be sent a message by the opposing pitcher.

He won't. He has to bat at Wrigley, and as we all know, Clemens is a little fraidy cat.

That's what I was thinking. Everybody's making such a big deal about it. "OMG, He's in the lineup after getting hit." He got the rest of the day off, there was an off day after that, and he's fine. Saying him going 0-3 with 3 ks is ok because he was hit is ridiculous. If I remember correctly, nobody even made a huge deal when he took 2-3 days off before the all star break for saying he was injured, but then was participating in the HR derby the next day. Damn media :angry:

It's funny to hear the drillrod Chip Caray call Frank a baby when he gets pissed, but heaven forbod somebody hits Sammy

First off, I can't stand Sammy. The guy makes me sick. I think he's selfish and his shameless showboating is just plain sickening.

That being said, I don't think the coverage was that big of a deal. I'll bet there still would've been heavy coverage of it even if it had been somebody else. Think about it. Getting beaned square in the head with a 90 mph fastball is going to make some news.

Yeah, and the second time he got hit, he got drilled in the @ss (whoa, that could be read the wrong way!). Getting hit in the behind has to be least painful place to get beaned. Quit all the sympathy. Suck it up Shamme!! Media, how about a few tears for Frank?

Speaking of Sammy getting hit, did anyone see a copy of the Red Streak today? In what has to go down as the most inessential use of a graphic I've ever seen, they had a diagram of the type of batting helmet Shammy was wearing when he got hit (i.e.-the same batting helmet every baseball player in the world uses). It had helpful descriptors of features like the "ear flap" on it, and a ridiculous inset showing the approximate area where the ball struck the helmet (apparently it struck the helmet on the helmet). I'll have to find another copy and scan it. I was laughing my arse off at how stupid the whole thing was. Only for Sham-me.

Depends if Estes is pitching that day.

That's true. To Estes, Clemens is the proverbial "broad side of a barn"...

You mean, like, if Paul Konerko got hit in the head by Kerry Wood?

I had to be restrained from beating the crap out of some moron cub fan who thought that was funny. Good thing he was on the patio & I was in the RF seats. What I'm trying to say is 'F' Sosa, I'd hit him too!
