Retaliation for what?

I don't see MLB nor the White Sox making a big stink about it.

Just the fans.

Mainly because this team is slowly falling off and fading away after playing out of their minds for two months.And because the Twins have had this franchise's number for awhile.

At least we can stop using the Metrodome as an excuse.

Thanks for informing people why they're angry about a dirty play.

You don't try to "knock the ball loose" by hitting the catcher in the face. If a catcher is blocking the plate you lower your shoulder and try to knock the ball from his mitt by trying to knock him on his ass.

Young went way out of his way, not even trying to get to the plate then went in with both hands to the face. Even though was out on a play that wasn't even close, he returned to the dugout and started high fiving everyone because he hit AJ in the face.

The Sox should make hard contact with a Twin in every play possible for the rest of this series. Go in hard and high every play at 2B. Intentionally make contact with the pitcher covering 1B even on an easy out instead of avoiding contact. Flatten Mauer at the plate every time they come around to score. There's plenty of ways to payback that don't involve throwing at a hitter. But if they must throw inside to get the point across, do it and don't worry if one slips and gets too far inside.

Is there video of that? Because i certainly didn't see that.

Um, the following member and another rambler have been doing just that:

I have no problem with plunking one of their players, but the members calling for headhunting or breaking kneecaps are acting like bigger jackasses than Young did last night.

I noticed the Carlton Fisk image at the bottom of your post. I wonder what he would have done or thought?

I wasn't quite 3 when the incident you are referencing happened and might not know all of the details. But I don't recall Fisk ever rooting for inflicting career-ending injuries or breaking kneecaps.

Well, I hope everyone posting here that the Sox would in the wrong for retaliating in any way for Young's actions last night just heard the Twins' fans reaction when Capps almost hit Beckham.
