In defense of Russ Springer

The other day Russ Springer hit Barry Bonds after throwing at him three times. Springer got ejected from the game and a standing ovation from the Houston fans.

I stand behind Russ Springer as a life long reliever. Barry Bonds has knocked a lot of relievers out of games. I would be ticked off if I was a pitcher like Russ Springer. Barry Bonds did not only make himself look good, he also made pitchers look bad. You cannot cheat without cheating off someone else.

I am not usually for pitchers throwing at batters. If a batter hits a home run off you, you should have thrown a better pitch. If that guy hit a home run off you because he was cheating he might deserve to get hit.
