Is it just me, or are other people hoping that when Strasburg comes up to bat tonight, whoever our pitcher may be goes right for plunking him?
To me, the Nats chose to start their young prodigy against our Buccos because, let's face it, the Pirates are the punching bag of the MLB- the butt of all jokes. No one takes us seriously. And that offends me. So sure, I'm hoping that the Bucs wipe the floor with the kid, but just as an extra little kick in the groin, I hope they throw at him to just show that we aren't like the little brother in the league everyone can push around and pick on.
It reminds me of Dock Ellis back in '74 against the Reds. Someone has to make the point.
