Don’t dig in tonight, Carlos Quentin

There was no immediate retaliation visited upon Carlos Quentin after he charged the mound and broke Zack Geinke’s collarbone. But Jeff Passan notes that, at the time, the Dodgers were saying that his time was going to come, with one unnamed Dodger telling Passan:

“We will get him,” he said. “It may not be next time we see him. It may not be the time after that. It may not be two times after that. But we will get him. I promise.”

The Dodgers meet the Padres tonight, kicking off a three-game set. Greinke won’t be going in the series so there won’t be a chance of direct retribution, but it wouldn’t be shocking if someone threw a ball at Quentin.

It’ll be awesome when it happens and the Dodgers pitcher says it just slipped out of his hand or Don Mattingly talks about how “you never want to hit a guy in that situation.”

    The Dodgers should sign Marty McSorley to a three-game contract.

      or Ivan Drago

    Or Marty McFly

    Should be interesting.. esp since Quentin normally gets hit a lot, they may hit him without specifically trying to retaliate.

    The Dodgers are talk, they don’t want any of that.

    Quentin crowds the plate so much, you’d think it would be easy, but it’s not. I expect the Commissioner’s office to monitor Padres/Dodgers games all season, and be ready to pounce unless the Dodgers pitcher du jour emphatically makes it look like an accident, by falling off the mound or something. In this series, Dodgers pitchers may go out of their way NOT to hit him, and end up walking him.

    It will have slipped out of his hand, because, as Jim Leyyland et al told us during the L’affaire Hamels, no pitcher in the history of the game has ever hit a batter on purpose until then.

    Somebody call Lt. Caffey, I think Col. Jessup just ordered a Code Red on Carlos. Fight night at the ‘ol ballpark…

    In other news the dodgers sign a guy who throw 120 mph with no aim on a one day contract

    Take your plunk Carlos and let the Dodgers keep crying about the downward spiral they keep going in. Dodgers pitchers keep it upper back or below or you have other issues to deal with.
