In last night's game between the Diamondbacks and Brewers is probably the best demonstration of why baseball's 'unwritten rules' are so dumb. The Milwaukee pitcher unintentionally hit two Arizona batters so, of course, the D-backs starter was obligated to plunk a Brewers batter. Not only did he hit Ryan Braun in the hip (after throwing behind him the pitch before), he loaded the bases in the process. After the Arizona bench got done patting their pitcher on the back for...something, this happened:
The Brewers went on to win 7-5. But, hey, I'm sure the Diamondbacks slept better last night knowing they enforced baseball's stupid code. That's why you're in last place by 15.5 games, fellas.
