Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa is sick and tired of everyone giving his team shit for drilling opposing batters for petty and stupid reasons. He wants everyone to know that if you are going to pitch inside against the Diamondbacks, then you need to be ready for your star player to catch a fastball to the spine, or something.
A quick recap: On Saturday, Diamondbacks pitcher Randall Delgado put a fastball right into Andrew McCutchen's back. McCutchen is now dealing with an apparently unrelated rib fracture, and he was beaned in retaliation for Pirates pitcher Ernesto Frieri breaking Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt's hand with an errant pitch the previous night. It didn't look like Goldschmidt was hit on purpose, and there's no real reason to believe he might have been.
