    Again, Farns should have been pitching.

    No one needs to bean him. We're not the redsox. Just get him out or walk him in tight spots.

    It's obviously not going to happen any time soon.

    Agreed. You dont bean anyone to put a runner on for Manny. However. For the past few seasons, we've tried pitching around him and we've tried getting him out and none of it works. It is definitely about time that somebody on our team tries to establish control of the plate by buzzing him up and in and hoping to get his focus off a little. Nothing else has worked, this is worth a try.

    All drilling him does is put him on, advance runners, and bring Ramirez to the plate.

    He is a fantastic hitter, and I think to minimize damage, folks need to keep other batters off the bases, so he can only hit a solo shot.

    I don't want to beam him, I don't believe in giving the other team base-runners but I would like to see him at least eat dirt. Even if he gets up and hits it 450 feet at least show something against him. But like Joe managed in game 6 of the 2004 ALCS, it wouldn't be "classy".

    Re: When is someone going bean Big Papi???

    He's a great hitter and so is Manny, but nobody else in their lineup really worries me. We just cannot afford to walk their average hitters and allow their lineup to turn over and put guys on base for those two. And I honestly don't think him getting beaned would do much but piss him off.
    I have to return some videotapes.

    Don't hit him. Just make him sit down hard.

    This is a myth perpetuated by newer fans.

    Hitting a hitter who is comfortably leaning over the plate while owning your pitchers isnt bush league. It is a pitchers way of cooling down a hitter. And apparently Ortiz is aware of this as he wears plenty of Kevlar up to the plate.

    Re: When is someone going bean Big Papi???

    Again, beaning him is not the answer. Brushing him back, making him feel a little uncomfortable up there and sending him a message that the pitcher owns the plate is not bush. Its something that a lot of very good pitchers used to do and no one does anymore, but is an effective way of pitching. Sometimes doing all you can to win is more important than staying classy.

    How does hitting him make us look bush league? It's been apart of the game for years. I support hitting Ortiz. I don't support beaning him in the head or anything like that, but put the guy on his ass. He crowds the plate and hits without a care in the world. Brush him off the plate and if he continues to crowd, plant one right in the small of his back.

    OK I'll take that. I hope Farnsworth is up to the task since I feel he is the only one that can do it.

    The Unit used to be like that... you know, back when he was unbeatable.

    I wouldn't want to see big Poopy get beaned. Leave those to the Tampa Devil Rays. What I'd like to see is him struckout consistently especially in tight situations.
    Beaning him isn't going to win games.

    David Ortiz is just a home run machine. I'd go for walking him. You just know that he is going to jack one in atight situation. He is just that good.
    More people have walked on the moon than have scored an earned run off of Mariano Rivera in the postseason.

    It is going to make him uncomfortable and what more can u ask for.

    Ask anyone who has ever played Baseball how they feel a pitcher when start pitching inside. Multiply that by 100 for ortiz who has his nose on the outside corner.

    Ask anyone who faced Gibson if what I am saying is a lie.

    It hasn't been tried before, so how would we know. What I do know is that Ortiz gets pissed if he doesn't get a borderline pitch and then usually ................s the bed in that AB. Why not brush him off the plate? It's the pitchers responsibility to establish the plate. Not only does it make it easier to hit, but it minimizes the strike zone.
