Whatever happened to intimidation in baseball?
8th inning, vs. Detroit. Ex-Yank Marcus Thames takes out Robinson Cano on a late slide into 2nd base to break up a DP. Legal? Sure, even though one could claim that Thames was out of the baseline. Cano was shaken up on the play.
What I was waiting to see...didn't happen.
When Thames came up to bat in the 10th, I fully expected to see Mo bring a heater high and tight.
If that happened, the ex-Yank farmhand would think about it next time.
Thats hard nosed baseball .
