I guess throwing at someone's head only gets you suspended if you make contact, while lobbing a message into someone's back is the worst thing ever.

It's only Porcello, Tiger fans don't care.

I always assumed por-CHELL-o but that's probably because I'm (half) Italian.

Yes, cause in a tie game in extra innings Rodney wanted to hit him...the previous pitch was about 2 feet outside to the backstop..if you know ANYTHING about baseball.. you know there was 0 intent..he was overthrowing and had no idea where it was going..

Congratulations.  You are the first Tigers fan ever to insinuate Fernando Rodney can hit what he's aiming at.  I don't remember that ever coming up from 2002-2009. Or from any Angel's fans in 2010 or 2011.

You appear to have a few misconceptions about the incidents.  First, saying Rodney threw AT his head implies it was on purpose, few reasons why that sure seems incorrect.   It's a tie game in extra innings, that's not when you start putting people on base on purpose.  Also, the pitch at Cabrera started on the inside part of the plate, and the movement took it that far close to him.  Now, in regards to Porcello, what he did is textbook headhunting.  He threw a 2 seemer aimed right at someones face.  Also, it was 94 mph and Zobrist took it to the upper arm/shoulder because he moved his arm in the way, so not exactly lobbed at his back.

Intent got Porcello suspended, you can't argue you didn't do it on purpose when your manager comes out and says it's going to happen before hand.

So he threw at the head on a 1-2 count in a close, late inning situation?  There's no way you actually believe that.  The ball was only like an inch off the plate.

You do realize he broke the record for lowest ERA in a season, right?  All time MLB record.

Just as a technicality, and it doesn't really change your point, but he didn't actually break the record, because he did not have enough innings pitched to actually qualify.

Yes, it's like how 95% the U.S. cannot pronounce bruschetta. Fools! All of them!

You do realize that only means people couldn't hit his pitches, not that he was accurate.

\Also, that wasn't when he was with Detroit.

You go, sit there and rest, Porchetta.  You'll be ready in no time.
