I'll shoot your eye out, kid
Oh how I wanna bean this muthafucka in the head with a baseball now myself! I'm thinkin' this pitch to the noggin, minus the hard-hat. Who's in?

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Beaning's too good for him. Someone should tie him to a chair and make him watch Mr Personality over and over while giving him a "questionable" blowjob. :)

I have a recliner that we could club him over the head with until he's senseless. Oh wait, he already IS senseless.
What a freakin' idiot.

He did it on PURPOSE? At least when Dave Winfield nailed the seagull it was an accident.

Christ on a snowmobile, what a dickhead. They ought to let the birds have their revenge on HIS pecker...

Sorry Mike, birds have too much class for that.

Oh...and what's up with BUCK ROGERS??? {snicker}

The guy who hit the bird should just pack up and go home. He must not be able to pitch to the players, so he has to pitch to animals.

As far as the second pic, let me preface what I am about to say with this: I am NOT in favor of pitching at the head. It is uncalled for at all levels and is a cheap shot. With that out of the way, I think the major league baseball players today are a bunch of wimps. Get real, guys. If you stand in the inner half of the box and lean over the plate you should EXPECT to get beaned (in the side, butt or legs). And then, the gutless wonders charge the mound when thrown at because they think the pitcher is trying to hurt them. Today's rules have taken away this effective tool of the pitchers. Bob Gibson ruled in the '60s because he was not afraid to dust ANYONE. (Note: To dust a batter is to throw at him in such a way that he has to dive down into the dust of the batter's box or get beaned) He determined how close the batter stood and how much he dug in to the box. Today if a pitcher dusts a batter he gets warned the first time and tossed the second. The pitcher that threw the bean you show here was tossed from the game immediately and as I recall faced a heavy fine, even though Sammy is as guilty as any batter today about hogging the plate and leaning over it while batting. In the late '60s when Gibson was all but unhittable (ERA of under 2.00 for the season as a starter) EVERY player that hit a home run against him was dusted on their next at bat. Not to say Gibson is a cheap shot or dirty, he just let the batter know who was in charge. I think today's major league pitchers have to be better than their counterparts of yesteryear because the rules committee has taken away dusting; since they can't knock down the batters they have to throw harder and with more control.

One more thing. The players of yesteryear did not charge the mound unless the pitcher threw at the head. Unlike today's overpaid wimps, they realized that being dusted was a part of the game. They saw it as the pitcher's equalizer. Today, the players charge the mound on even a closely contested inside pitch. Heck I saw one game last year where the player was so close he bailed and started to charge the mound on a STRIKE! Be a bit more like Don Baylor - if you crowd the plate expect to take a pitch on the back, butt or legs. Take the pitch and take your base - it is how the game is played.
