Kevin Youkilis, left, of the Red Sox charged the mound and tackled Detroit pitcher Rick Porcello after being hit by a pitch in the second inning of Tuesday night's game at Fenway Park. Tigers first baseman Ryan Raburn tried to get in the middle, but Youkilis took Porcello to the ground.
Check out the look on his face.
Is he serious?
Pitching can go a little awry. Your arm gets tired, you let go of the ball a little too soon, you lose your footing on the mound - etc.
Do you mean to tell me that everyone in the Red Sox Administration can look at the pictures today in the Globe, review the reaction and not check his arms for needle marks?
If he's not on steroids or drugs, something is seriously wrong with the individual. Baseball has got to sweep out bullies, oafs and drug addicts. They are destroying the appeal.
