I would expect warnings issued prior to the game. It's why retaliation is very difficult in todays game. If that's the case I hope Liriano plunks one of our guys and gets tossed. If not, I hope Carlos, AJ, or Andruw have a close play at the plate tonight. And I expect the Sox to be going in hard at second the rest of the series.
To me putting one in Mauer or Youngs back accomplishes very little, if anything. If there are warnings issued, it's just downright stupid.
