Dodgers, Mets, and the Beanball

utleyNo one ever likes to see a player writhing on the field in extreme pain. That, however, is the picture that will remain in the minds of sports fans following Game 2 between the Mets and the Dodgers. When Chase Utley slid into second base he did more than just break up a double play, he also broke the leg of Ruben Tejada.

I’m not a betting man, but I think the odds are high that the Mets’ Pitchers have already painted a target on Utley.  He is a marked man who has to know that Game 3 means he has at least one pitch that going to come in hard, fast, high and inside.
