To me putting one in Mauer or Youngs back accomplishes very little, if anything. If there are warnings issued, it's just downright stupid.
And doing nothing accomplishes what?
If warnings were issued prior to the game, then you don't have your start pitcher do it but as soon as you go into the pen you do.
The best way to get back at them is to win but I don't see anything wrong with putting one if Young's back. If anything it tells them that the Sox are not going to put up with that crap.
